It seemed an option forgotten, but Philippe Coutinho would not have moved away of the orbit of the Barça. In spite of the refusal of the Liverpool, the Barcelona would be posing the signing of the of River, although they would doubt on if tackle his arrival in winter or summer

The frustration of the summer gave step to a time of institutional silence, but as it had especulado in the last weeks, the FC Barcelona would follow rondando the incorporation of Philippe Coutinho. The statements of his general director signalling that the club has the sufficient money to face an operation of such dimensions, and even some more, do not do more than confirming an interest that already has arrived to the English press.

But in the Barcelona changing room follow existing some doubts on the Brazilian, in particular on which would be the ideal moment for his arrival. So much if the offensive produces in winter as if finally it postpones until the summer, seems clear that his incorporation is accepted, useful and even necessary, since it would allow that the staff gave a jump of quality, although there is not agreement with the times.

The main reasons of discussion with regard to his signing in January are the possible difficulties in his adaptation and the Champions League. Change of team to half season always supposes an extra effort, by the fault of tuning with the rest of the mates, the trainer, a new league, a new destination... And more having the millionaire effort that would require Coutinho.

Besides, the one of River already participated in the maximum European competition with the Liverpool, something that would prevent him do it in the rest of the course with any another conjoint. An investment of such calado by a player that will have to adapt to maximum speed to support in League and Glass seems immoderate.

The summer, another dilemma

However, the arrival of the summer neither finish to launch light with regard to the possible sentence in the incorporation of Philippe Coutinho. Although for the moment it has tested his efficiency, the staff seems to be something just to continue in the fight by the three titles to the end of season, and will be fundamental the decision of Ernesto Valverde on if they do fault or no wintry reinforcements.

Another point against is the interest that already generates the Brazilian, that would have behind to Paris Saint Germain and to Neymar personificando the tasks of seduction of Nasser To the-Khelaïfi, with his own doubts by the 'Fair Play Financial' and an investigation by corruption. In the market estival is used to to have more beaux, and the Barça already has in the Liverpool a sufficiently complicated rival. The Brazilian likes, but, again, will not be easy.
