The Spanish La Liga giants, Barcelona looked so excited in their efforts to get rid of players who were considered surplus. The player in question here is Philippe Coutinho who is considered not included in the team’s plans next season, and is eager to get rid of him as soon as possible.
Interestingly here when Barcelona is willing to get a big loss even though the most important thing is Coutinho left the Camp Nou. It is a note that Coutinho landed in Spain from Liverpool in the 2018 season. Barcelona successfully hijacked the player with a tag of 135 million Pounds.
The bad thing for Barcelona here is the appearance of Coutinho who claimed not to be included in the team’s tactics and was considered very disappointing. The 2018-2019 season was the peak where Coutinho got a lot of criticism, five goals were the result of his trip in the last season so Barcelona were so determined to sell it.
According to various sources, Barcelona already has the selling price of Coutinho and is ready to offer big European clubs even small clubs. The beginning of this plan is that Barcelona wants to return capital by selling Coutinho in the range of 120 million Pounds.
But that intention did not go as expected as Coutinho’s selling price was considered too high because he saw the quality of the player himself who failed more than success. On that basis, why Barcelona finally thought to reduce the selling price of Coutinho to 107.5 million Pounds.
Lowering the price of Coutinho immediately got a response, so far, there have been two big clubs that showed interest in the midfield star of the Brazilian national team. The first club was Paris Saint Germain, and the second was Liverpool although Jurgen Klopp signaled that the midfielder’s transfer would not have been possible.
Coutinho himself did not participate in Barcelona’s 2019 pre-season trip in Asia. It is known if the player gets an additional holiday allowance from Ernesto Valverde, after he finishes taking part in the Brazilian national team struggle to win the 2019 Copa America.
