With Barcelona linked to players like Lautaro Martinez and Neymar, the Catalan team needs to transfer players to raise funds. Philippe Coutinho is often included when the subject of selling players is discussed.
In this case, Phillipe Coutinho is the main guy, as his selling could be subject to a considerable fee, as Barcelona is reluctant to let him go for under EUR 80 million.
With that in mind, that means Mauricio Pochettino may have a major say in the Blaugrana’s fortunes this summer. The Argentine coach is the main candidate at Newcastle to lead the new project, and it is known that he wants to set up a team around Coutinho, as he had before when he was in Espanyol.
When the return of Coutinho to England comes to life, that will give Barcelona the cash boost it needs to go after its summer goals.
This could be a win-win scenario because Coutinho would be able to return to the league where he enjoyed his greatest achievements, Pochettino would have a player he knows and loves, and Barcelona would have welcomed a big payoff conclusion that MARCA gave.
Coutinho is getting back into form for his career. During his loan stint so far this season he has bagged nine goals and eight assists for Bayern Munich.
