Manager Jurgen Klopp had insisted last Wednesday that Liverpool are under no pressure to sell Coutinho.
Despite looking elsewhere, there is certainly unfinished business between Barcelona, Liverpool and Coutinho in this transfer window, and this afternoon's news will improve the likelihood of them securing the signature of their number one transfer target.
The family member added: "There are things that have happened, there is not the same bond".

However, that has all changed once again now that Coutinho has made clear his desire to move on with an official request.
Barca believe Coutinho can step in for Neymar alongside Lionel Messi and former Liverpool favourite Luis Suarez in a star-studded front three, and could also provide cover for 33-year-old Andres Iniesta in midfield.
He was Liverpool's leading scorer with 14 goals in all competitions last term, a season that saw Klopp's men secure a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League.
Klopp's comments on the Coutinho situation were oddly cryptic, however.
As the transfer saga continues, Coutinho will miss tonight's clash with Watford with a back problem. "No, he is not available, he is also a doubt for Tuesday, unfortunately".
"That's the way I feel but the way I see it panning out is that the club will try as much as they can to keep him". That's how life is.
"Hopefully, when I play I will bring good performances to the team and I hope that everybody brings a good performance to help us win the game".
