Philippe Coutinho is one of the oddest cases of the last years. The mediapunta was one of the best players of the Premier League and in the Liverpool had turned into the 'crack' that aimed to be of youngster. By all this, the FC Barcelona was convinced that his signing would give a jump of quality to the team and did not doubt in disbursing 140 million euros by him.
It arrived to Can Barça in the market of signings of winter and in his first alone months left destellos of the a lot of that could contribute. The past campaign had to be the one of his consolidation like one of the leaders of the staff, but the things have not gone as it expected . The '7' has not given the level and has been one of the most distinguished of the team culé. It has been so disappointing his performance that from does months says that it could leave the Camp Nou.
To these heights, this yes, there are more probabilities that it continue that that it leave . And more taking into account the last words of his agent Kia Joorabchian. The representative of the ex of the Espanyol has left clear that his represented will not go to any club of the Premier League that was not the Liverpool, the team with which turned into a súper star.

The agent of the '7' practically descartó that it can play in Manchester by the rivalry with the 'reds'. "The Manchester United is a big club, have players there and have them all the respect, but regarding Philippe, would be extremely difficult, an almost impossible movement", commented.
Coutinho Remains without options
The Barça has clear that will not give to Coutinho and the player only will go out if it arrives an offer of 100 millions or more by him. This to day of today seems almost impossible and therefore it seems that the Brazilian goes to finish remaining. Besides, to personal level, the own Cou does not have too many alternatives if descarta to all the teams of the Premier, except to the Liverpool. The PSG does not seem that it have him in his radar right now and in Italy neither has place, with what Valverde will have to find him place in the rotation with almost total security.
