Calendar of FC Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho goes way to turn into the big problem of the FC Barcelona for this summer. Ousmane Dembélé Seemed allocated to be it, but after his injury his renewal is something more near and his exit this summer is almost descartada. Instead, with the Brazilian the intention is that it leave yes or yes, but in these moments there are not offers by him and is not at all clear that go to arrive sometime.

If in normal conditions seemed difficult that some club decided to pay a traspaso important by him, now that carries several months 'KO' and that there are doubts on his physical state this is much more unlikely. In fact, in the newspaper 'ACE' ensured this Thursday that the Barça​ every time has clearer that goes to be impossible 'remove of on' to the of Rio de Janeiro this summer. In fact, for now there is not neither proposals of cession, something that yes expected that there was.

However, no everything is stray and in England the newspaper 'Mirror' aims that the Arsenal could be the saviour of the Barcelona with Cou. It seems that the 'gunners' are looking for a mediapunta in the market after the Real Madrid confirmed him to Martin Odegaard that has he for the season that comes. Mikel Arteta, technician of the group londinense, looked forward to to have the vikingo at least another course more, but will not have this luck.

By this reason, from London already give by stray to the Nordic and would have fixed in Coutinho to replace him in the staff. An information that could have some sense, but that at the same time does not finish to sustain because the Arsenal already has to a 'substitute' of the international by Norway. It treats of Emile Smith Rowe, jewel of the 'gunners', that shined the past campaign and that had to displace to the band with the arrival of the madridista.

With the exit of Odegaard, the normal would be that Arteta went back to plant to the English in the mediapunta and that did not spend money in another signing for this zone of the field. Besides, it is necessary to take into account that the wage of the Brazilian in the Barça is of roughly some 12 million annual euros, a quantity totally out of market taking into account the level that has given these last years. Pay him this without being an indispensable reinforcement could not being a suitable business in time of pandemia.

The Arsenal would have doubts with the physicist of Coutinho

Nevertheless, in spite of the doubts that can have with the operation, in the 'Mirror' signal clearly that the Basque trainer wants a creative midfield player for his Arsenal and that likes him a lot of Coutinho. Besides, they leave clear that the 'gunners' have doubts with his physicist after his last injury and that only will do some approach in case to confirm that it is to 100%. In the weeks to come it could have novelties on this subject.
