Beyond that, Philippe Coutinho's name also came up. "He's a Liverpool player and I have a lot of respect for Liverpool. What we do in the summer is be very discreet about everything, so we can't confirm or deny anything," explained Bartomeu. 

However he did say that the squad would be reinforced regardless of whether Neymar leaves or not. "More players will come, one in the midfield, definitely," he said.
