FC Barcelona and Arsenal will face each other this Sunday in the Camp Nou, where they will compete for the Joan Gamper Trophy. In England is ensured that the catalan and the english could take advantage of their meeting and negotiate for Philippe Coutinho
The FC Barcelona is accelerating in the market of signings of the summer 2019, and has his almost smart staff. The Catalans have reinforced with the arrivals of Frenkie of Jong, Net Walled and Antoine Griezmann and in brief could confirm the one of Junior Firpo, what will allow them expect with more calm some interesting opportunity and centre in completing his operation gone out.
One of the most important cases in this last plot is the one of Philippe Coutinho, whose continuity in the City Condal is not at all clear. The carioca turned into the most expensive incorporation of the history of the club in January of 2018 -120 million euros more 40 in variable-, but after a first campaign of remarkable, his first whole course like Barcelona -the 2018-19- left a lot that wish, and did not attain to find his best level.
This bajón of performance and the fierce competition that exists in the team -is difficult that find place so much in the forward as in the medullary- have posed a possible traspaso, but the culés do not want to lose money and his options are reduced. The intention is to sell him by 100 million euros or more or pactar a cession with which can revalorizarle, two methods that would avoid a hole in the economy of the entity because of the amortizaciones.
One of the destinations that sounds with more strength for the crack is the Premier League, where there are several pending groups of his future. As 'The Sun', the Arsenal is one of them, and could take advantage of his visit in the Trophy Joan Gamper to negotiate a loan of the crack. The 'gunners' have to an ex barcelonista like Raül Sanllehí, his general director, like ace in the sleeve, and already know that the Barça demands between 20 and 25 millions to yield to the ex of the Liverpool during a season.
In case that the conversations go by good way, will touch to rush, because the market in England closes prompt. The Thursday 8 August to average late, the groups ascribed to the FA will not be able to inscribe players, what would postpone any arrival until the wintry window, a measure that for the time being the Catalans do not contemplate, since move the changing room in January does not be used to to bring positive consequences.
If Coutinho remains in the Barça, has to recover his level
That Coutinho remain in the Barça would not be a discontent, but would have to encourage to the maximum to collaborate in the fight by the titles. The quality never leftover and more in a so demanding calendar like the one of the Barcelona, but the one of Rio de Janeiro would have to begin of zero and park his penalties to go back to be that footballer that marvelled to the Camp Nou playing beside Andrés Iniesta.
