Barcelona sets lowest bids for Philippe Coutinho

After the coronavirus lockdown put the squeeze on their finances, the La Liga champions are desperate to balance the books. The club is prepared to lower Coutinho asking price to €70million. The amount is less than half the fee they paid Liverpool two and a half years ago for Coutinho.

Catalans are facing a tough time and are under pressure to slash their wage budget by the start of football’s new financial year.

Barcelona is reportedly set to entertain €70 m ( £ 63.23 m) bids for Philippe Coutinho. None of the clubs wants the Brazilian on next season’s books, despite posting decent returns on the Catalan giants and a loan spell on Bayern Munich. This has left Barcelona desperately in need of a bidder before the end of the financial year for football on June 30.

The latest La Liga outfit stance has enhanced the possibility of a transfer to the Premier League according to Diario Sport. It is said that the situation is being monitored by Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United, though each club would prefer a loan deal.

The report suggests that Bayern could also be open to a second loan spell, instead of taking up an option to sign the 28-year-old permanently next month.
