Celebrity News: FC Barcelona has reached an agreement with Philippe Coutinho, Brazilian player of Liverpool, to become a new signing this summer. According to the Catalan radio station RAC-1, now the Catalan club has only to reach an agreement with its home team, Liverpool. A ‘just’ much more complicated than it seems.
As it counted on Tuesday EcoDiario.es, the English will not begin to negotiate for Coutinho unless they are credited 100 million euros, an amount that the Barca sees exaggerated. At Camp Nou, they would be willing to pay around 60 million. There is, therefore, 40 million euros difference between the two positions.
Barça hopes that, in this sense, the topic that a player always plays where he wants to serve to soften the position of the Anfield. It is not, perhaps, the best of expectations because, in recent seasons, they have not always managed to tie those players with whom they have reached an agreement rather than with their home sets. Rather the opposite.
The most recent example (perhaps also the most painful) is that of Marco Verratti. The Italian agreed with Barca his signing, but it was impossible to move a single apex to the PSG of his initial position: Verratti is not sold.
Moreover, that Barça negotiated first with the player before that with the PSG has meant that the Gauls are harder with the Catalans than, for example, with the United. To the equipment of Mourinho yes that they have opened the doors to him to agree a transfer that, in addition, would help to fight to Neymar.
Neymar’s case has a lot to do with Coutinho’s fast-paced Barca interest. The Brazilian (intimate friend of the star culé) would be one of the substitutes of the striker in case he finally fichase (as it seems) by the PSG.
The 222 million that Barca would charge would be important to close the operation of Coutinho. Without them, the signing in the terms proposed by Liverpool (who has the frying pan by the handle) is almost impossible to face.
