FC Barca slaps €120m on Coutinho


Barcelona are reportedly only willing to sell Philippe Coutinho this summer if they receive an offer worth €120m for the Brazilian ace.

The Catalan giants signed the playmaker from Liverpool in a deal which could cost them £142m in total, but unfortunately for them, the 27-year-old hasn’t been able to hit top form at the Nou Camp.

Coutinho managed just 11 goals and five assists in 54 appearances last season, his first full campaign since joining the reigning La Liga champions, and it was certainly a struggle for him to prove his worth and showcase his best form.

In turn, that has led to question marks being raised over his future, and according to, Barcelona are willing to sell the Brazilian international but only if they receive an offer of around €120m.

Further, importantly it’s also noted that for a departure to realistically materialise, any interested party will also have to pay his reported €14m-a-year wages, and so with those two figures in mind, it’s suggested that only Man Utd, Man City and Paris Saint-Germain have the financial strength to satisfy those demands.

Time will tell if that’s the case or not, but it would seem as though the marquee signing of Coutinho hasn’t gone to plan and now Barcelona could be ready to cut their losses rather than persist and hope that he comes good.
