Philppe Coutinho apparently says YES to Barcelona

Liverpool’s Brazilian magician, Philppe Coutinho has apparently agreed to make a huge move to Barcelona next season. Coutinho was a prime target for Barcelona in the summer and it looks like they have got their man. Now, the two clubs will need to settle down on a transfer fee as Philppe Coutinho apparently says YES to Barcelona.

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.

Since that high, Gerrard has retired, Suarez and Sterling have left the club and Sturridge has struggled with injuries. All this has led to Coutinho being the main man at the club to which he has responded superbly.

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 Couninho.

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.
