That didn't stop Barcelona returning with a third bid for the Brazilian playmaker, worth £114 million, which was also swiftly rejected by the Reds.
While Liverpool made it clear time and again, most recently in these leaked emails, that Coutinho hadn't been for sale at any price, the lowball bids, 'mes que un club' bullying mentality, constant lying to a gullible and complicit Catalan media, and underhanded tactics meant to unsettle the player and fracture his relationship with club were enough to leave a permanent bad taste in ones mouth.
Early August - Michael Edwards (Sporting Director, LFC) responded to improved offer of £90 million.
In the absence of the suspended Sadio Mane, Coutinho was back as part of a front three, where he performed best last season, and Leicester never came to terms with his trickery or vision.

En este sentido, Skerrit ha pedido en su mensaje a otras naciones y organizaciones que envíen helicópteros a la isla. Sin embargo, el huracán perdió algo de fuerza en su paso por la isla caribeña que hizo rebajar la categoría a 4.
The emails also show agent Kia Joorabchian stood to make £9million if the deal went through and Barca paid less than £100m.
Manager Juergen Klopp was delighted with the way his side clung on, with Simon Mignolet saving a late penalty to secure Liverpool's victory at a ground where they have struggled in recent years.
Coutinho got his first start in the disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley last weekend.
Coutinho netted Liverpool's second and set up Mohamed Salah's opener in the Reds' 3-2 Premier League win at the King Power Stadium.
Whether they would have done so without Coutinho pushing them is another matter.
