Don Balon love claiming to know what’s been said in the dressing rooms of Spain’s biggest clubs.
Either they completely imagine it or they have spies all over the place, you’re free to take your pick of either of those scenarios.
Anyway, the latest La Liga star who has reportedly had his dressing rooms chats leaked out is Philippe Coutinho, and the former Liverpool player is said to have informed the Barcelona squad of Jurgen Klopp’s next big signing.
RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, which most of the big clubs, including Liverpool, taking their turn in the circus.
The Klopp connection makes some sense, with the Anfield boss already bringing a string of players from the Bundesliga to Merseyside. Coutinho has shared this ‘tip’ with his teammates, although there’s no explanation of how he’d actually know.
Don Balon make reference to all Liverpool’s money from their big January sale, and believe Werner arriving at Anfield would be just the ‘tip of the iceberg’.
Hmm, let’s wait and see.
