“Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona in a stunning £142m deal last week”
The two biggest transfers in the January window so far both involve Liverpool, with the Reds receiving and spending record amounts.
Philippe Coutinho went through the Anfield exit door and joined Barcelona in a stunning £142m deal last week – making him the second most expensive footballer of all time.
And the Reds have spent half of that money on Virgil Van Dijk, whose £75m move to Merseyside is the most expensive fee paid for a defender in history.
Diego Costa also wrapped up a £59m move from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid this month after being made to wait five months due to the Spanish club’s transfer embargo.
