Alberto Moreno has told his Team mate Philippe Coutinho to reject his transfer to the Catalan club.
The Brazil international was the subject of three bids from the Spanish giants before the transfer deadline, but the Reds held firm to ensure the 25-year-old remained at Anfield until at least January.
He told The Guardian: “I’ve said: ‘Brother, don’t go.’ If I get to decide, Philippe’s not going.
He’s my friend and always will be. I don’t know what will happen. If it was down to me, I’d love him close to me for life, always enjoying seeing him play football, which is a wonder.
“But I can’t interfere. It’s Liverpool, Barcelona and him, and they decide. He’s a big piece at Liverpool. Every fan, everyone who watches Liverpool, everyone who understands football knows that. They know that if he goes, it will leave a big hole.
“It’s a privilege, it’s an honour to share a dressing room with him. I see him train every day and he does things I’ve never seen before.”
