Philippe Coutinho, now yes, has many numbers to leave Barça. After many weeks of contacts and internal work, Barça begins to have the Brazilian football player’s departure on track, one of the great challenges of this summer market. There is nothing closed yet, but in the club there is some optimism about making an operation that can be very beneficial for the entity. Barça will try to be a transfer, although no possibility is closed. Coutinho is closer to goodbye.
Barça has tried to bring the Coutinho theme with the utmost respect and stealth so as not to devalue the player. For months they have known perfectly that the player is not comfortable with his role in the squad and they were clear that a solution should be found. Phillipe Coutinho was the most expensive signing in club history and is one of the highest paid players in the squad. Finding a way out that was beneficial for the entity was almost a chimera, but the sports area has moved well in the market.
The Blaugrana club has met with its agents on several occasions and have always hidden their letters. It was a poker game, since the player’s environment was clear that the player had made an important effort to sign for Barça and were not willing to give up the chip. Neymar agents have never refused to analyze offers, but neither have they suggested destinations awaiting more direct information from Barça.
At this time, the Blaugrana club already has a firm offer on the table, of which the player and his environment are aware. It would be a proposal in which Coutinho could keep his record and Barça is now analyzing all the scenarios. The main idea of the Blaugrana club is to sell to Coutinho for a price in which no losses are quantified. It is also likely a transfer with lower compulsory purchase option, since it would have been another year of amortization.
Barça’s great help is at the close of the British market, on August 8. English clubs begin to tighten and are stirring European football. Rumors spread about Manchester United and City’s interest in Coutinho yesterday, but they remain silent at Barça. It has been a complicated operation and stealth is maximum, since it is important that it can materialize in the coming days. The only thing that seems clear is that Phillipe Coutinho would not enter, today, in the return operation of Neymar since the PSG is not for the work of signing him. The French club’s sports director, Leonardo, told Barça a few days ago even though they were testing this option at first.
The exit of Coutinho, therefore, will be clean and towards a European club and its destination could be the Premier League. The player returns to Barcelona in the next few hours and the club will talk with him and his representatives. The negotiating exit route is underway, although everything will be decided next week. In any case, Barça does not intend to sell the player. Before, I’d rather give it up so it would revalue. Coutinho has not triumphed at Barça, but he does have enough quality to relaunch his crack career. The time has come
