However, fans should not get too excited.

In fact, Coutinho is likely to be making the trip to take part in an international game for Brazil.


With the World Cup taking place in the summer in Russia, the five-times winners will be fine-tuning their preparations.

And according to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are at an advanced stage with their negotiations over Brazil facing Croatia in a warm-up match at Anfield.

The report also suggests that Stamford Bridge was discussed as a potential venue for the fixture.

However, it is suggested that Croatian defender Dejan Lovren pushed for the game to be played at his club’s home ground.

Should the fixture go ahead, Coutinho will be back at Anfield – just five months after completing a £142million switch to the Nou Camp.

The World Cup gets underway on June 14.

As far as Coutinho is concerned, he will be hoping to finish his club season in style.

Barcelona could win the treble, as they are seven points clear at the top of La Liga, into the final of the Copa del Rey and have a Champions League last 16 tie against Chelsea to look forward to.
