This international break may ultimately shut the entire door for Barcelona in their pursuit of Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho and Neymar is reportedly playing a part in it. The Brazilian star who this summer stunned the world after leaving the Catalan giants for PSG has apparently urged his compatriot Coutinho to reject any offer from Barcelona. According to the latest report published by Spanish news outlet Marca, Neymar is desperately trying to convince Coutinho not to be tempted to Fill The Void left by Neymar at Camp Nou. Neymar left the Catalan club seeking a new challenge, who knows may be he realized that as long as Messi is at Barcelona.

The former Santos player might never manage to come out of the Argentine superstar’s shadow.

Barcelona wants Coutinho

Barcelona, on the other hand, are trying everything they have in their resolve to make sure the Coutinho deal succeeds before the transfer window shuts down, but Liverpool are still reluctant to discuss any deal as they have informed the former Inter Milan man he will not be sold this summer no matter how big the offers are. Spanish newspaper Estadao also reported that Neymar has told the Brazilian attacker not to make a move for La Liga if he desires to develop his career. Neymar said to have advised Coutinho that even though Liverpool’s intention look like a bit unfair to him now, but in the future, he will understand the consequences and realize what the Anfield board has done for him is actually to protect his career.

Neymar Seeking revenge

Another issue is making the situation worse; the way Neymar broke Barcelona’s heart for a mouth-watering £200.6m deal, accepting PSG’s offer that has angered the Catalan club’s hierarchy. There is a bitter war of words going on since that transfer, with Barcelona continuing their attempts to recover the damages from Neymar.

The Brazilian alleging a "breach of contract." If these reports are correct then Neymar's action certainly has a possibility of revenge against his former employers. Barcelona will no doubt continue their chase for Coutinho in the coming days before the transfer window shuts down. It will be an interesting thing to see if the alleged recent conversations between the two Brazilians enforce a deciding factor in the ongoing transfer war. Still, Barca has one day left to sign the midfielder to strengthen the team. It is worth noting that the Catalan giants are in Juventus' group in Champions League.
