  • Philippe Coutinho

The Liverpool sharpshooter has been subject to massive speculation regarding a potential move to Barcelona and following a failed bid by the La Liga club to land the Brazilian's services during the summer, fans from both clubs nearly expect that it is just a matter of time before a deal is done.

Barcelona have denied any knowledge of the advert.

Nike's official website featured a strip down the middle, with the headline "Where the Magic Happens".

The outpatient departments in private hospitals were closed in support of the strike called by the Indian Medical Association. Similarly in Karnataka, hundreds of private hospitals shut their OPDs to protest against the NMC Bill, 2017.

While Liverpool's attacking make-up will now be much discussed as rumours regarding Coutinho's exit continue to swirl, Klopp has already moved to address his squad's glaring defensive weaknesses by sealing a £75m deal for wantaway Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Nike also has a sponsorship deal with Coutinho. "We have good players and we don't have to sell anybody because of that".

'Nobody told me that. "I have no information about that", he said.
