Report: Barcelona Open into Philippe Coutinho £90M Sale Amid Man United RumoursBleacher Report #Bleacher_ReportMarch 24, 2019
According to Moises Llorens of ESPN FC, while the player wants to remain at the Camp Nou, Barcelona are considering Coutinho’s future.
“Barcelona do not have a firm offer from any club at this point, but some have expressed an interest in the player,” said a source quoted in Llorens’ report.
“Key people, who are either directly or indirectly linked with various clubs have been following the situation closely.”
According to Jon Richardson of the Sunday Mirror , the playmaker has already spoken to United stars about a possible transfer.
Coutinho has been rotated in and out of the Barcelona XI this season, and he was on the bench when the team took on Real Betis on Sunday.
Having become Barcelona’s record signing at the start of 2018, expectations were high when Coutinho arrived in Catalonia.
During his time at Liverpool in the Premier League, he had developed a reputation as one of European football’s most effective attacking midfielders.
At his best, Coutinho is able to dribble past opposition players with ease and find incisive passes into tight areas.
Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones thinks Barca will seek to move Coutinho on in the summer and doesn’t think his former club would be interested:
With Barcelona going for the La Liga title, the UEFA Champions League and the Copa del Rey, opportunities should be plentiful.
