To put Coutinho's £145m price tag in context, that's an off-peak return from Newcastle to London Kings Cross purchased up to two months in advance.

People asking #LFC for money back on Coutinho shirts!! If you were stupid enough to put Coutinho on the back of your new shirt, you deserve a good slap… not money back! 😒

Philippe Coutinho is sold for £145m and Liverpool are linked with Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez.

This can only mean one thing…

Welcome to Anfield, James Ward-Prowse!

Almost 32 years ago Mark Hughes left England to play for Barcelona, which means in 2050, Coutinho will get sacked as manager of Stoke City. Thank me later if anyone backs this 😂
