Barcelona Open To Offers For Philippe Coutinho In The Excess Of €80m

Barcelona Open To Offers For Philippe Coutinho In The Excess Of €80m

Barcelona are reportedly interested in shopping Brazilian midfielder Coutinho, just one year after his eye-watering £142m move to the Nou Camp from Liverpool.

Seen as a long-term replacement for club legend Iniesta, Coutinho initially found some success in Spain, having helped Barcelona to the domestic double and scoring 10 goals and making six assists in his last 16 games of the 2017-18 season.

However, the move that the 26-year-old was so desperate to make has not been so straight forward this season. A hamstring injury in November saw the winger side-lined allowing Ousame Dembélé to pair with Messi and Suarez to form Barcelona's attack, and Coutinho has since lost his place.

Following a 2-1 defeat to Levante in the Copa Del Rey in January assistant manager Jon Aspiazu admitted that Coutinho had fallen behind Dembélé and that he "is not perhaps at the same level as last year," - a worrying thought for Coutinho's future at the club.

It appears that Barcelona are open to offers and are willing to discuss offers over £68m, a significant loss on their initial investment, ouch.

While Coutinho has been linked with Manchester United in the past it appears unlikely that the midfielder would return to England and his former clubs biggest rivals.

It is understood that the Brazilian does not wish to return as his family struggled to adapt to life in England, with PSG now the most likely suitors.

A move to the French capital would mean linking up with fellow Brazilians Neymar, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Dani Alves and a fresh start, in what has been a tumultuous time at Barça.

However, despite PSG having the cash and the move looking favourable for Coutinho, no official approach has been made.
