Barcelona eyeing Liverpool Ace Coutinho
La Liga side Barcelona are eyeing Liverpool ace midfielder Coutinho.
Liverpool fans just can’t go away from the Coutinho to Barcelona rumours as the name of the Brazilian emerging star are being highlighted in different Spanish & Catalan sports journals about a switch from Anfield to Camp Nou.
Although Barcelona’s sporting director Roberto Fernandez confirmed that La Masia graduate & one of the Barca’s greatest luminaries Andres Iniesta will stay at his dearest Catalan club since his contract expires in the summer of 2018.
Barca sporting officials primarily scanned two players as a potential long-term replacement of Barcelona’s 32 years old Iniesta. Those two are Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho & PSG midfielder Marco Verratti.
According to “Anfield HQ” the Brazilian already showed his trophy frustration after the draw against city yesterday, “I’ll be honest & I will say that I was hoping better this season. The players are very ambitious & we all want to win title”, quoted the Liverpool midfielder.
In terms of football personality, Coutinho & Iniesta are quite apart, the former in fact with a more attacking utility & PSG’s Verratti is far more suitable finding a like-for-like replacement.
But that doesn’t prevent any rumour of Coutinho about a transfer to Catalonia, although Sunday Times writer Duncan Castles pointed out his poor form against the city. “ Another match where Coutinho failed to play to his own very high standard “, He quoted.
