Philippe Coutinho aimed to the Premier League, but finally the market of English signings closed and the Brazilian remained in the FC Barcelona. Right now, Paris Saint-Germain seems the only team that could be interested in him. The mediapunta could go in in the operation of Neymar if the Parisians accepted to negotiate with the Barça.

But this hypothetical negotiation never would have taken place if the Tottenham had fulfilled with his word and had answered to a fax. Sportive world explains the intrahistoria of the cession frustrated of the ex of the Liverpool to the group of London. It seems that the operation was practically enclosed and that they were the 'spurs' those that threw backwards.

The negotiations between both teams were the Tuesday happened telephonically. English and barcelonistas arrived to an agreement after arguing the terms and remained pactada a conveyance with option to buy. Josep Maria Bartomeu and Òscar Grau found in United States beside the rest of the staff and therefore pactó that the loans would sign by a fax.

The Barcelona wrote all the conditions, signed the document and commanded it to him to the Tottenham via fax in the morning of the Tuesday to the Wednesday. The market of the Premier closed the Thursday, with what the londinenses had an almost two days to answer and close the incorporation of the mediapunta Brazilian.

Only it was missing the signature of Daniel Levy so that the international by Brazil left the concentration of the Barça in United States and put course to London. The Barcelona were expecting the answer during hours, but this never arrived. Anybody in the Tottenham gave any explanation and the Barcelona enteró that to the 'spurs' no longer interested them Coutinho when they announced to Celso.

Coutinho Seems quetott will remain

Unless it go in in the operation by Neymar, everything seems to indicate that Coutinho goes to finish remaining in the Barcelona. In the club still have hope to be able to find him exit, whatever happens with Ney, but the reality is that the mediapunta does not have too market right now. In Italy only the Inter follows looking for reinforcements, whereas in Germany, the Bayern looks for extreme purer and Cou would not adjust to this profile.
