The FC Barcelonto has a good problem with Philippe Coutinho. Especially by the need that has the club to sell him -by his high index card near of the 12 million euros by season, by the extra millions that will pay to the Liverpool if it finish remaining and by the fact of not having place in the team- and by the a lot of that has complicated said task.

The Premier League closed his window of traspasos this Thursday in the afternoon and before beginning the day already had dissipated any option of return to England for Coutinho. Like this it ensured it the Sportive World, leaving clear that had closed the doors of the British clubs for the midfield player carioca after frustrating his arrival to the Tottenham.

The group of Mauritius Pochettino threw backwards in the last moment. The agreement between the Catalan club and the londinense was practically enclosed and even were beginning to draft the contractual documents of the agreement, but in the Tottenham finally finish giving a refusal that can influence of catastrophic form in the plans culés.

It is necessary to remember that said agreement consisted in a conveyance with option to buy to final of season. The Tottenham had accepted to do charge of the index card of the player until finalising the course, in addition to paying 25 million euros to the club culé by the loan. The option of final purchase was of roughly some 100 million euros, what had allowed amotrtizar the signing of Coutinho completely.

Now, the only hopes for 'plant' to Coutinho are the French league -with Paris Saint-Germain like only candidate to do with his services- and the Italian, although in this last there are few clubs that can allow the tremendo cost that would suppose to draft to the midfield player carioca. Thus, everything aims to that the ex of the Liverpool will remain in the Camp Nou.

Obstacle for fichar to Neymar

If the FC Barcelona does not achieve to yield or traspasar to Philippe Coutinho, the arrival of Neymar to the Camp Nou will be practically impossible. Especially because the high wage of 'Cou' does that, if his compatriot returned, rebasaría the limit salarial established in the staff. The stagnation in the exit of the carioca, consistently, moves away the return of the star of the PSG.
