Although the FC Barcelona expects that the traspaso of Philippe Coutinho concretise during this same week, the Barcelona picture has to have a lot of care because they are quite a lot the 'fringes' that it can have an operation that involves to the better player paid of the staff. From the City Condal, confían in that the Brazilian will go out of the Camp Nou in brief, but will have to be patient and know that the negotiations can carry more time of what they wanted to.

The Aston Villa has arisen like the main candidate to carry to the Brazilian player, but in quality of loan and without option of compulsory purchase. To difference, the Barça looks forward to to include this condition so that the negotiations arrive to good port. That goes to be the point that goes to determine if Coutinho will happen to play in the Villa Park or, by the contrary, the Barcelona picture will have to look for him new destination... If possible.

Another factor that is key is the wage of the player. Coutinho Earns in the Barça around 22 million gross euros, a very high wage for the culés, but also for any team. The Aston Villa would have to commission of the half of the wage, 11 'kilos', by the rest of the season. However, from England aim that the Villa will try that 'Cou' accept a significant reduction of his income.

Like this then , with the option of purchase (compulsory or no) more the wage of the Brazilian, the way is traced so that the negotiations concretise próximamente, although as it has recognised Steven Gerrard, trainer of the Aston Villa, for the moment all has remained in speculations, although no descarta the interest in which in his moment was his mate in the Liverpool: "it does not like me speak of players that are not in my team, as it does not like me that they speak of mine. I have not done it never and I will not do it now", it began saying the ex footballer.

Gerrard Has commissioned to leave clear that is not between his plans speak on a player that has agreement with another club, although it is free to negotiate for treating of the market of wintry signings: "He is now in the Barcelona, although I understand that we are in the market of signings and comment these things and there are speculations with a lot of names. But they are only speculations, when there is something more concrete the followers will be the first in knowing it".

With such and was not as in 2021...

It is not a secret for anybody that Philippe Coutinho has been in the door of exit of the Barça from, precisely, his return of the cession of the Bayern of Munich. The culés always have been "ready" to undo of the footballer, but always remains in an operation fallida or, directly, in a rumour. The past year, during the summer, 'Cou' sounded to reinforce the Arsenal, Everton or several teams of the Series To, but the picture culé did not achieve to give him an exit.
