8.28: More from Sport's interview with Brazil boss Tite.
He has urged Philippe Coutinho and Neymar to link up at Barcelona before the World Cup next summer.
And he says he has spoken to Jurgen Klopp about how to get the best out of the Anfield star by playing him in a central position.
"Yes, this is an alternative if we shuffle (the team)," he said.
"I even talked to Klopp and him about this possibility.
"We need to create alternatives. Of course, doubts arise: will he be better marked in the centre and lose the element surprise? We will only see this when we do it."
7.35: Philippe Coutinho would be a perfect fit at Barcelona, says Brazil manager Tite.
Barcelona have been linked with a swoop for Coutinho, although Liverpool are desperate to retain their star player.
Asked by Spanish newspaper Sport about a move to Barcelona, Tite said: "I'm always talking hypothetically, let's make that clear.
"There have Sergio Busquets and the two midfielders, what in Italy they call 'mezzalas' (half wingers/attackers) that are Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta, that are the two thinkers of the side.
"Coutinho can play in that role. He is an ideal player for Barca."

7.25am: Steve Gerrard says Jurgen Klopp has the draw factor needed to bring the best players in the world to Liverpool.
Klopp secured the Reds a return to the Champions League for next season.
The Reds are working hard on deals, although Klopp has conceded they are not on the verge of signing any of their targets.
And Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo Klopp will get his men.
“If I’m a top player around Europe and Jurgen picks the phone up and I get offered the chance to play for this club, which is moving forward in every single department and has a world class manager leading it, I’d be jumping at that opportunity,” he said.
“I want to play for him and I am 37 next week! For me, it’s such an exciting project. Not just because we qualified for the Champions League but the whole project.
“The next three, four, five, six years, whatever it turns out to be, are going to be very exciting and players will want to be a part of what Jurgen is doing.”
7am: Liverpool are not interested in signing Iker Casillas and have responded with surprise at being linked to the goalkeeper.
Liverpool were said to have signed pre-contract terms with Spaniard Casillas this summer.
The former Real Madrid star is out of contract after leaving Porto at the end of this season.
But the Liverpool Echo report that the Reds have no intention of doing a deal.
Casillas, 36, is seeking a new club but he won't be heading to Anfield.
Despite calls from a large section of Liverpool's support base, manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to keep Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius at the club.
Neither goalkeeper has greatly impressed this season but Klopp remains faithful in his shot-stoppers.
