Barcelona to sell Coutinho to fund move for €180 million superstar

Coutinho arrived at Barcelona last winter amid huge fanfare for a whopping €140 million. After initially hitting the ground running, he seems to have pulled up with his popularity and reputation hitting an all-time low over the past month or so.

Now, according to Evening Standard, Barcelona is ready to drop the guillotine on Coutinho if that’ll help them facilitate enough funds to re-sign Neymar. Neymar had joined PSG from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 for a world-record €222 million.

Coutinho was expected to either fulfil the void left by Neymar or the one left by Iniesta. However, he couldn’t reach the standards expected of him and now finds himself playing for his future at the Camp Nou after making his dream move.
