Gary Neville has been relishing in Liverpool FC’s ongoing transfer saga involving Philippe Coutinho after Jamie Carragher justified keeping the Brazilian at Anfield.
The Brazilian midfielder is being linked with a move to Barcelona in the January transfer window after the La Liga giants failed to lure the 25-year-old to Camp Nou in the summer.
Liverpool FC turned down a number of bids from the Catalan side for their prized asset despite Coutinho handing in a transfer request at the Merseyside club.
Carragher took to Twitter on Wednesday to urge Liverpool FC to keep Coutinho at Anfield until the end of the season ahead of the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig next summer.
Former Manchester United defender Neville was quick to ridicule his Sky Sports colleague with a cheeky tweet to suggest that the Manchester United legend expects Coutinho to leave.
Carragher posted on Twitter: “Best thing @LFC is agree the BIG fee for Coutinho to go in the summer like we’ve done with Keita, not now. What do the club gain by doing it now? Top 4 & CL progression seriously risked if they sell in Jan, & difficult to replace him now. If he goes on strike he damages himself.”
In response, Neville wrote: “A lovely story.”
Coutinho scored 13 goals and made seven assists in 31 games in the Premier League last season to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence.
The Reds signed Coutinho in an £8.5m deal from Serie A giants Inter Milan in the 2013 January transfer window.
