We are near to finalise the month of July and Philippe Coutinho still has not cleared his future. The Brazilian has had a very poor performance during his first complete season in the FC Barcelona, by what the club culé would study offers that reached roughly the 120 million euros, as well as the possibility to include him like coin of change in the 'operation Neymar'.

But to day of today, neither Paris Saint-Germain is had to accept the exchange of chromiums (not even adding money in addition to the pass of the Brazilian) neither neither seems to have team in Europe had to satisfy the economic expectations of the Catalan entity for traspasarle or the ones of the own player regarding wage.

Thus, it is necessary to consider seriously the possibility that the ex of the Liverpool was still in the FC Barcelona after the closing of the market of traspasos. In this case, Coutinho would have to step forward regarding his performance to convince to Ernesto Valverde that, in spite of the arrival of Antoine Griezmann, still has place in the team.

However, it is necessary to be realistic. Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé and the own Griezmann are above the Brazilian regarding performance and will be difficult to see again to Coutinho with possibilities to be considered to title in the offensive trident. Thus, one of the few options of the carioca -as long as it improve his provision- would be his reconversion.

Coutinho Has qualities to play of interior

By his qualities and conditions futbolísticas, Coutinho could adapt well to the place of left interior if it works physical and tácticamente. The Brazilian has creativity, vision, precision in the pass, far shot and arrival from second line, by what see him playing in the medullary beside Frenkie of Jong or to Arthur could not being a simple chimaera.

This yes, it is necessary to remember that Ernesto Valverde already tested him in this position at the beginning of the past season and the technician extremeño did not finish very convinced, by what finish him putting of extreme. Coutinho Would have to learn to be useful in defence and to give support to the defenders. Only like this it could do change of opinion to the Txingurri to win a place, although distinct to the that carries time playing.
