The 23-year-old Brazil international’s agent has denied speculation he is in talks with the La Liga club ahead of a proposed move for his client to the Santiago Bernabeu
Philippe Coutinho is “extremely happy” at Liverpool and has no plans to leave the club amid links with Real Madrid, claims his agent Kia Joorabchian.
Brazilian midfielder Coutinho has emerged as a transfer target for the La Liga giants, who have reportedly opened talks with his widely-known representative.
La Liga champions Barcelona and Manchester City have also been linked with the Reds playmaker, however, Joorabchian insists his client is determined to lead the newly-managerless outfit to the Champions League.
“Philippe is extremely happy at Liverpool,” Joorabchian told the Daily Mail.
“He signed a new long term contract towards the end of last season that represents his ambition and his feeling for Liverpool.
“Reports that I have been talking to Real Madrid about Philippe are not true.
“His aspirations are to qualify for the Champions League with Liverpool this season and to win a trophy. That is all that he is focussed on – and nothing else.”
