The FC Barcelona bet by the pair Ousmane Dembélé-Philippe Coutinho​ with the 222 million euros that received by Neymar Jr. The culés thought that both footballers could be keys in the team to short and long term and therefore they disbursed 105 'kilos' and other 40 in variables by the French, and 120 and 40 by aims by the mediapunta of the Liverpool. For the moment, both bets have resulted disappointing and any has surrendered to the level that expected .

The Frenchman still is still in the Barça, but this campaign hardly has been able to play by the injuries and, after his operation, already has confirmed that it will not return to the terrains of game until next year. Cou, by his part, left yielded the past summer to the Bayern of Munich, that saved an option of purchase no compulsory of 120 millions to remain it in property. The performance of the Brazilian has not excited to the Bavarians, that seem to have decided not exerting this option and give back to the player to the Camp Nou.

The Barcelona have increasingly clear that in summer will go back Coutinho and are beginning to assume that if they want to sell it go to have to go down a lot his pretences. The idea would be to accept offers between 80-90 'kilos' and thinks that some could arrive. But the reality is that even 80 millions could be too many for a footballer that carries two years very underneath of the level that exhibited in the Liverpool.

Precisely the 'reds' could be one of the groups that interest by the mediapunta in the market of signings veraniego. Jürgen Klopp always has spoken well of him and has him in high esteem, by what could be a very interesting option for all the parts. Nevertheless, it seems that Coutinho does not believe in the second opportunities and in his last interview to 'Sports Illustrated' has ensured that it does not want to look to backwards and that only is centred in the future.

"I do not look to backwards. I took another way and now am in another trip, as all the other. I am entirely concentrated, to the equal that they, in reaching my dreams. I am happy with what did in the past and now only can look to forward", affirmed. With these words, gives the impression that the international 'canarinho' closes the door to this possible return to Anfield of the that many speak.

Coutinho, loved with seeing to the Liverpool in the highest

The still footballer of the FC Barcelona, at least, yes showed loved with seeing to the Liverpool to the extraordinary level that is right now. The English are imparables in the Premier League and this course want to do doublet with the league and the Champions League. "The Liverpool is flying. It does not surprise me by his fantastic team and trainer. I am very happy by them. Have a lot of friends there, so I am very happy by them, but this is everything", finalised.
