The past Thursday, the Premier League closed the period so that the teams could inscribe players. Time that was insufficient so that the FC Barcelona concretised the traspaso or the cession of the footballers that hinder in the plans of the sportive direction to go out this same summer. Something that, in the case of Philippe Coutinho, can be an important setback.

The Barcelona club was about to to arrive to an agreement with the Tottenham Hotspur for the cession of the carioca in return of 25 million euros more an option of purchase by value of other 100.

The favourite of the club would be a traspaso of the Brazilian to Paris Saint-Germain like part of the payment by Neymar, but the Parisians deny to seat to negotiate with the culés, and much less including to some player in the exit of 'Ney'.

Another option that discerns is the Juventus of Turín, that looks for the traspaso of Paulo Dybala and that it could go to by Coutinho if finally it achieves to plant to the Argentinian, according to the Italian press. In Germany also especulan with the option of the Bayern of Munich, but the Bavarians would not be in conditions to assume the costs of his index card.
