Brazil legend wants to see Liverpool ace quit Anfield and move to Spain

Real Madrid and Brazil legend Ronaldo has revealed that he would like to see his compatriot Philippe Coutinho move to the Spanish capital.

The 24-year-old has developed into one of the best creative playmakers in Europe since moving to Anfield from Inter in 2013, and continues to play a key role for the Reds.

With 32 goals in 153 appearances for the club, he’ll hope to continue to improve in the coming months and years under Jurgen Klopp’s stewardship.

However, Ronaldo has other ideas and when asked which player he would like to see move to the Bernabeu, he picked his compatriot.

“I would like to see Coutinho at Real Madrid, the Liverpool player,” Ronaldo told Onda Cero.

Coutinho has four goals and three assists in nine appearances in all competitions so far this season, as he continues to play an integral role for the Reds.

In turn, it’s highly unlikely that Liverpool will entertain talk of a move elsewhere, as he will undoubtedly have a huge role to play in their plans for the future.

Success at the club will be key in convincing him to stay though, as Real will offer assurances of competing for silverware both at home and abroad every year.

Nevertheless, with Liverpool currently in fourth place in the Premier League table with 17 points from their opening eight games, leaving them just two points adrift of joint leaders Manchester City and Arsenal, they will certainly harbour hopes of competing for the biggest prize this season to convince him that they are moving in the right direction with him as a focal point.
