The season 2019-20 neither has attained to recover to the best Philippe Coutinho, but the crack will be leading in the summer of 2020. The footballer of Rio de Janeiro accumulates seven goals and eight assistances in Germany since it was yielded to the Bayern of Munich, but like everything aims to that the Bavarians will not exert his option of purchase, the FC Barcelona will have to seat with him to elaborate the strategy of face to a new change of airs.

The Barcelona study the best alternative for the carioca, to the that could sell after turning into him the most expensive incorporation of his history. The youngster was of more to less in the Camp Nou, but does not be necessary to forget that is 27 years old and a lot of quality. It does not be necessary to give him by finishing. In this sense, the club will do to cost his talent, and in spite of investing 120 million euros in his contracting (have not paid all of the 40 additional millions in variables), would accept between 70 and 80 like compensation, although the aim is to approach to the border of the 100 'kilos'.

In England ensure that the Brazilian will have several offers to end of course, since there are several groups posing his signing. 'Daily Express' Plays it to him and ensures that one of the most interested is the Liverpool, in which Jürgen Klopp carries time saying that it is better to reinforce little but well. The results and the millionaire bets by Virgil go Dijk or Alisson Becker give him the reason, and according to the quoted half, if his offensive by Kai Havertz does not succeed -to the mediapunta wants him half Europe-, would launch to by a star that already shined to his orders.

In the Premier League, the 'reds' would not be the only that would have asked after his situation, since there are others that know that with spaces and in the suitable position, the attacker can be very useful. Always according to the version of the publication mentioned, the leaders of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham also pose call to the ex of the Basque Gives Range, to the that would be complicated to see in Old Trafford by the historical rivalry that exists with the ones of Anfield, a question that the player already has warned that takes into account.

But neither it would be necessary descartar the operations of exchange, a method by which insist in France. In this case, it is 'Him10Sport' the one who puts it on the table like solution for the delicate case Neymar, since it would contribute a promising exit for all the involved. Coutinho Could look for his place in another club with aspirations, his compatriot reencontrarse with Leo Messi and company and both entities would do with the services of footballers of maximum level without having to throw the house by the window, what would allow them approach to other aims.

In these circumstances, the Barça also could repeat the formula with the Inter of Milan, since Philippe is used to to play more comfortable with a concerning the side and in Giuseppe Meazza milita a nine so portentoso like Romelu Lukaku. In this possible barter would go in two young figures of the 'nerazzurri', since the names of Lautaro Martínez and Alessadro Bastoni are underlined in red in the diary of the square barcelonista, and neither is necessary obviar the pressure that the lombardos are exerting on Arturo Vidal.

The continuity of Coutinho in the Barça, possible but complicated

A last option would be that Coutinho remained in the Barça, something that would not be descabellado but that to day of today is complicated. Unless Quique Setién demand insistentemente his return, the culés prefer to do borrón and new account, and instead of giving another opportunity to a player that generates doubts, will try to take him out economic performance and reinvertir in alternatives that could contribute more value to level mediático and, especially, futbolístico.
