The FC Barcelona has very clear from does months that Philippe Coutinho does not go to form part of the next staff of the group culé. The Barcelona plan to sell to the mediapunta from does a lot and pretended to take out by him some 80 or 90 million euros. Unfortunately, the coronavirus has caused an economic crisis that will not help to traspasar to a footballer that already of by yes comes devaluated of his cession to the Bayern of Munich.

The campaign of the Brazilian in him Bundesliga has been very irregular and the Bavarians have decided not exerting his option of purchase by 120 'kilos'. The international 'canarinho' will return to Can Barça, although the idea is that not even it do the pre-season to the orders of Quique Setién. In fact, as it signals the newspaper 'Sport', seems that the Catalans already would have advanced the exit of the ex of the Liverpool course to the Premier League.

Chelsea, that already interested by him the past summer, is the English club that more interested is in the '10' of the Bayern. The footballer has descartado all the proposals that do not avenge of England and his wish is to return to the league in which more it shined. The 'blues' negotiate his incorporation with the Barça, that already would have renounced to the idea of traspasar to the of Rio de Janeiro. The blaugrana have tried it with the club chaired by Roman Abrahimovic, but the proposal that received was very insufficient.

In front of this situation, the barcelonistas would have preferred to go back to yield to the player, in this case to Chelsea. But unlike what sucedió with the loan of this year to the Bayern, the culés want that the option of purchase of the 'blues' was compulsory. In the Barcelona have thought in putting a figure to the drop, of some 65 million euros, for at least ensure this money. The Catalans know that there are possibilities that the mediapunta follow devaluating and prefer pactar the sale already to risk and carry less inside a year.

Chelsea does not want to run risks with Coutinho

The ones of Stamford Bridge, instead, do not want to take risks with a footballer that carries two years without showing his best version. In the English team prefer that the option of purchase was greater, on the 80 millions, for example, but that it was optional. Frank Lampard, technical 'blue', trust can take him out juice to Coutinho so that it go back to be the one of before, but still like this know that it is an operation of risk and no want to it to him play.

The wage of the Brazilian and the quantity that would credit the londinenses by the cession already would rise to a cost of some 30 million euros. With an initial cost like this and with the crisis that there is in the world of the football for the time being, Chelsea wants to avoid unnecessary risks. This small big fringe is the one who would be missing to finish of encarrilar the loan of the of River to the team of London. By his part, the international by Brazil would be putting all the eases of the world to be able to play in the Premier the campaign that comes.
