Barcelona will step up their chase for Liverpool midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, by making a new bid of €120million, with the departure of Neymar moving ever closer.

Paris Saint-Germain are closing in on a world-record £196m move for Neymar, who left Barcelona’s training ground just 43 minutes after arriving on Wednesday morning.

Barca want to make his fellow Brazilian Coutinho their big-name capture of the summer.

The La Liga giants are under intense pressure to make a statement signing from supporters, who are distraught at losing Neymar and will go back to Liverpool with an improved offer, after a £72m bid was rejected earlier this summer.

Liverpool are adamant that they will not sell their playmaker, but it remains to be seen if they would be able to resist a big-money offer.
