The surprising saga of Neymar has become the main story of the summer. The Brazilian looks set on leaving Barcelona, with PSG ready to pay his buy out clause of 222 million euros.
It is also reported that Barcelona are willing to bring in Liverpool’s Coutinho, in order to appease Neymar. Many media outlets are saying that Barcelona have sent their representatives to England, in order to negotiate a deal with Liverpool.
If reports are to be believed, then Liverpool want around 90 Million Euros for their star man, a figure which Barcelona are still not quite sure about.
Coutinho wants to join Barcelona and no other club, as he rejected the chance to join PSG even though they were offering him higher wages.
Barcelona believe that Countinho’s desire to join them will help them reduce Liverpool’s asking price.
Coutinho has become one of the stars of the Premier League during his stay at Liverpool. He played a critical role during Liverpool’s assault at the title a few years ago, when he provided the ammunition for Suarez and Sturridge.

His magical dribbling skills coupled with deadly set piece accuracy has made Coutinho one of the most coveted midfielders in the word. So much so that Neymar had initially asked the Barcelona board to go all out in their attempts to sign Coutinho.
The pair have formed a superb partnership for their country and if Coutinho does indeed make his big move, we can expect them to continue that in Spain.
Barcelona have clearly identified him as Iniesta’s heir and wish to bring him to the Nou Camp. After a very disappointing season, the Catalan club wish to bring in some reinforcements in order to make a big push on all fronts next season.
