According to reports in Spain, part of the deal that saw Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho leave the club for Barcelona in January 2018 means that the Catalan side cannot raid their Premier League counterparts for another player until 2021.

A lengthy pursuit ended with the Spanish champions getting their man as Coutinho completed a £145m move at the turn of the year, thus following former 'Reds' star Luis Suarez in swapping Anfield for Camp Nou,

Following Liverpool's impressive performances last season in their march to the Champions League final, a host of their stars have been linked with big-money moves away from the club, but it seems that Barcelona will not be their destination should they indeed move on.

According to Spanish radio station 'Cadena Ser', an agreement was written into the Coutinho move stating that Barcelona cannot sign another Liverpool player for another three years, unless Jurgen Klopp's side actively choose to allow the player in question to join the 'Blaugrana'.

Should the clause be real, it will no doubt help calm fears that the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino could be lured away from Merseyside in the near future, though there remain plenty of European heavyweights aside from Barcelona that are understood be huge admirers of the trio.
