Liverpool clause in Philippe Coutinho deal is complicated

Liverpool and Barcelona agreed an unique clause during transfer negotiations for Philippe Coutinho in January 2018.
Ronald Koeman wants to figure together with his former midfield general Gini Wijnaldum once more and convey him to Catalonia as a part of his new Barcelona project. The Dutchman's Anfield future remains up within the air with Liverpool still yet to agree a contract extension together with his entourage.

While the club remain in talks with Wijnaldum, it now appears that the 29-year-old is gearing up to go away the Premier League champions after four years on Merseyside.

He remains a key figure for Jurgen Klopp and is a component of the club's plans for the upcoming season.

Barcelona Manager has been monitoring Wijnaldum's situation and now planning to capitalise on his potential availability.

There has also been some suggestion that Liverpool could look to maneuver Wijnaldum on to fund a swoop for Thiago Alcantara, who is out there for £25million.

However, Liverpool would wish to interrupt their own agreement over transfers with Barcelona if they were willing to let Wijnaldum join the Spanish giants.

According to the Daily Mail, back in January 2018 during talks for Coutinho, Michael Edwards seized initiate and negotiated a clause with Barcelona which meant they were unable to sign any Liverpool players until 2021.

Should Barca which to interrupt this pact, they might need to pay a £90m premium on top of any potential transfer fee.
