Philippe Coutinho has been yielded finally to Bayern Munich for a season, and now the big doubt is if it will arrive or no Neymar Jr to reinforce the Barcelona attack or if, however, everything will remain the same
The first rumours on the interest of the Bayern Munich in Philippe Coutinho seemed mere speculations of market, but in the last days has given the surprise and the polyvalent Brazilian player, that had turned into the fifth option for the leading culé, will play this season 2019-20 yielded in the group trained by Nico Kovac.
The most expensive signing of the history of the FC Barcelona, that cost 120 fixed millions more 40 'kilos' in variables, does the cases hardly a course and half afterwards in quality of yielded, a situation that a lot of fans culés are criticising and that do not finish to understand. True is that Coutinho was not to the level expected the past campaign, but keeps on being one of the best footballers of the world and is possible that the year in the Bayern serve him for 'resurrect'.
The FC Barcelona will remain without an effective that could go him very well like alternative for the front of attack this course, in spite of the existent competition. To day of today, without going more far, Leo Messi and Luis Suárez are lesionados and exist a lot of doubts about the performance of Griezmann, the one who still has not finish to adapt to the game and the Barcelona discipline.
From here that many do not understand the course of 'Cou', that already is closed evidently and that will not prevent that next summer the Brazilian return to the team culé, as long as the Bayern Munich do not credit the option of purchase of 120 million euros. From 'FCBN', want to ask to our readers if ficharían to Neymar Jr or to another attacker to relieve to Coutinho, or if by the contrary would leave the staff as it is.
Messi, Suárez, Griezmann and Dembélé are at present the forwards of the first staff, and if it does not land Neymar Jr is possible that Ernesto Valverde bet for rising to Carles Pérez or Abel Ruiz like complementos. Which think you that would be the best solution? We offer them four options: the first of all, struggle by the signing of Neymar; another would be to bet by another forward in the market of signings; the third give ball to Abel Ruiz or Carles Pérez like fifth option; and, the last alternative, leave it all as it is and play the season 2019-20 with only four forwards.
In this last case, fits to stand out that players of the current staff like Carles Aleñá and Rafinha Alcántara -the one who still has not done the cases- can assume also the role of extreme, mediapunta or false nine in punctual parties. If there were a lot of problems up, besides, the Barça always could use the window of the market of winter to incorporate to a new piece.
The Barça has to take already a decision
They are not few the alternatives that has the FC Barcelona to finish to close the staff 2019-20. Sean cuales are the decisions of the directive and the technical office, in communion with Ernesto Valverde, is clear that they will have to take along this week. What before close the team, with more tranquility will be able to work the group to the hour to prepare each one of the parties in this start of campaign. And after the unexpected defeat against the Athletic Club in Saint Mamés, the big priority is enderezar the course in League.
