More and more seems to be one of the best transfers in the 127-year history of Liverpool.
The sale of the Reds Philippe Coutinho in Barcelona in January 2018 was the one that little-if at all-wanted to come from a Liverpool perspective at that time.
At least Jurgen Klopp, who hoped to keep Brazil in the long run after watching him illuminate Anfield with a series of great displays in the first half of 2017/18.
However, Coutinho's head was turned and his heart was set – Liverpool could do a little bit, but negotiate for the best possible job for them.
Michael Edwards, for the eternal recognition of the Liverpool Sports Director, did it with the confidence he made his trademark.
Liverpool reached an agreement worth a total £ 142million with Barcelona, making the biggest reward that Reds earned from selling players.
It was also the biggest transfer involving the British club, which comfortably surpassed Manchester United's £ 89m bid for Paul Pogba in 2016.
The transfer was valid for the initial £ 106m with further £ 36m in add-ons focused on a number of clauses related to winning trophies and milestones.
The names for Coutinho League League Leagues in Camp Nou might have seen Reds earn a closer amount, but such numbers were not published, while Barca did not win the Champions League since they were signed by Brazil International.

In May, Liverpool added another £ 4.3m last season after Barca entered the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
They were, of course, eliminated in the semifinals of Liverpool, ensuring that a clause of £ 4.3m was launched, bringing the overall overall amount to a minimum £ 110.3m.
One clause considered to be in the contract a £ 17m a fee that will be paid in full when the attacking midfielder represents La Liga champions 100 times.
Barca's last appearance – 2-1 defeat to Valencia in the Copa del Rey – was his 75th in the club since joining in January 2018.
It was reported that Red earned £ 4.4m for every turn of 25 games Coutinho reaches, which means they have accumulated £ 13.2m until now.
Liverpool would be sure to earn a full 17 million pound if star Selecao stayed in Camp Nou this summer, but given the intense daily speculation, that's far from certain.
Another twenty-five performances for Coutinho in Barca lead to Liverpool total £ 127.3m, but this overall figure hangs in balance until the closing of the European transfer window on September 2nd.
As a result, Liverpool has earned so far £ 123.5m for the 27-year-old, leaving them £ 18.5m without compensation that Coutinha made the third most expensive transfer in history 18 months ago.
The fee is an incredible amount of money for a player who cost the club less than 10% when it was brought to Anfield for £ 8.5 million in January 2013.
Edwards's transfer work was commended even after it was found that he had reached an agreement banning Barcelona from re-entering the market for more Liverpool players by 2020.
In November last year, ECHO reported that Edwards insisted on a € 100m (£ 89m) The premium is placed on any Reds player that the Catalans wanted.
These terms meant that Barcelona was probably unlikely to return to a table like Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk or Robert Firmino.
