Both stars have been granted additional time off by Liverpool and Barcelona respectively, following their hectic summer playing schedules.

Coutinho’s future remains unclear, following an indifferent start to life in Barcelona
The playmaker has been repeatedly linked with an early exit from Barca, after a poor 2018-19 campaign.
Coutinho remains keen to make good of his move to Catalonia, and his representatives this week insisted they have been made assurances by the Barca hierarchy that their client will not be sold.
Reports in Spain this week have suggested Barca will use Coutinho as bait to tempt Paris Saint Germain into selling Neymar, after the forward told the French club of his desires to leave.
The Coutinho camp have remained tight-lipped on any possible transfer, though have all but ruled out any potential future move to Manchester United.
‘Manchester United is a great club, I have players there and I have all the respect for them, but as far as Philippe goes it would be an extremely difficult to a near-impossible move,’ Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian told talkSPORT.
‘It would be very difficult for Philippe to play for any of Liverpool’s rivals, because he has such a great affinity towards Liverpool. His time there was fantastic.’
