Philippe Coutinho arrived to the FC Barcelona in January of 2018 to turn into the new reference of the team in the centre of the field but hardly a year afterwards, the rumours aim to his possible exit, since his performance has not convinced to date. The past season, the injuries of Ousmane Dembélé opened him the perta to the titularity, but did not know it take advantage of.

Nevertheless, there are not firm offers by him, by what does not be necessary descartar that it finish remaining. The problem that will have the Brazilian is that the signings of Antoine Griezmann and of Frenkie of Jong can subtract him a lot of leadership, since they have arrived this summer to occupy the positions that covers Coutinho.

The French will have his almost ensured place in the forward beside Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Dembélé. Four footballers for three places, what will complicate the things to the carioca. Coutinho Also can play of interior, but this position seems reserved for players as Of Jong, Ivan Rakitic or Arthur Melo.

By all this, if Coutinho finish remaining, will have to do a bigger effort that never to win the place. The past campaign saw him totally desubicado, without spark and without confidence. Attributes that will have to recover to shine as it did it in the Liverpool or in his first months in the Camp Nou.

The arguments of Coutinho to play

The advantage of Philippe Coutinho is resembled the one of Antoine Griezmann: the polivalencia. The Brazilian can occupy the place of extreme by both sides or the one of interior, by both sides also. Thus, if it recovers his best version, will have several places by which litigate and will not see covered by an alone player.

But all this will go marked, of course, by his level of game. In the Glass America expected to the best Coutinho, but neither appeared to be decisive with his selection. The flame of the carioca seems to have turned off, by what will have to go back to begin from zero to win the confidence of the barcelonismo, of the technicians and of the club.
