Liverpool scored a valuable win over Aston Villa at the weekend thanks to a superb brace from the returning Daniel Sturridge, and there's news on the future of one of their key players. 

Coutinho has become the main creative influence for the Reds, and they have relied on him to create moments of magic, much like his winning goal at Stoke in August. But they face a battle to keep hold of the diminutive Brazilian, as both Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have registered their interest in the playmaker. 

Barcelona have been linked for the past few weeks, and now it seems that Real Madrid are on the hunt for fresh talent to inject into their squad. Liverpool lost Luis Suarez to Barcelona in 2014 and face the prospect of losing another player, but much will depend on the future of Brendan Rodgers, and if he leaves, who the new man would be. 

It is believed that if any move were to be made, it would be next summer, rather than in January.
