FC Barcelona does not want to lose money with Coutinho and the Brazilian will only move from the club if a millionaire offer arrives. The 'culés' will not transfer the brazilian for less than 120 million euros
Philippe Coutinho arrived to the FC Barcelona in the market of signings of winter in the year 2018. The Brazilian cost 120 million euros and other 40 in variables, and converted of this way in the most expensive signing of the history of the Barcelona group. The mediapunta carried several years being one of the best footballers of the Premier League and expected big things of him, but for the moment his performance has been very disappointing.
The past campaign was especially bad and went definitely the worst of the Barça along the course. In the Camp Nou has seen him absent-minded, little hit, without hunger and with the feeling of not being comfortable in the field. His performance has been so poor that even spoke of his exit of the club, but Sport aims that his future seems to be more near of the Barcelona that never.
In the offices of the Camp Nou do not want to lose money with the ex of the Liverpool and are conscious that in these moments his value has fallen enough. The Barça does not have thought traspasar to the mediapunta by less than 120 millions, that is what cost, and only would listen equal or upper offers to this quantity. Up to now there is not any offer by him and seems that it does not go to arrive any. Liverpool And Paris Saint-Germain seem the only roads, but any will pay so much money.
If they do not arrive offers, the Barça has clear that will remain with the international Brazilian. Still there is time to be able to reconducir his situation and Ernesto Valverde has confirmed that has he and that would not matter him follow doing it a year more. If it remains and this course goes back to disappoint, his course of the Barcelona yes would be practically ensured.
Coutinho Will have to struggle by the place
The Barça has reinforced of way very intelligent and has added a 'crack' by line. In the centre of the field has arrived Frenkie of Jong and in the forward Antoine Griezmann. Both will be direct competition of a Coutinho that goes to have the very expensive minutes. The left band in which it played big part of the past course is reserved now to the Frenchman. Besides, Ousmane Dembélé also would play in this position and seems to be by in front of him right now.
But if it goes him to cost play up, do it in the midfield could be even more complicated. The '7' can play in the mediapunta with two midfield players by behind him and Valverde could put him here to try recover his best version. The problem is that there is a surplus tremendo of midfield players right now. Busquets, Of Jong, Arthur, Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Aleñá, Sergi Roberto and even Riqui Puig compete by a place here. Everything aims to that Coutinho goes to be followed in the Barcelona, but at all ensures him have the minutes and the opportunities that yes had the past year.
