The Brazilian midfielder could reach the club’s emerging project Magpie, according Daily express. There is no talk of figures, but the operation would benefit a Barça team with financial difficulties and that does not have the Brazilian among its untouchables.
Philippe Coutinho arrived at FC Barcelona in January 2018 at a rate of 120 million fixed and 40 variable euros, of which 15 have already been paid. The transaction has not been beneficial at a sporting level and there was even a loan period to Bayern München in the 2019-20 academic year. So far this year he has been seen in six games, three of them as a starter, partly due to injuries on the offensive plot.
As the headlines recover, the Brazilian will lose the hole in the eleven with a left side destined to be the property of Ansu Fati and a midfielder position that is difficult to fit into a 1-4-3-3, not performing as a left interior or being able to move from eleven to Pedri González.
That is why, according to the Daily express, the footballer could change of scene in January and, in this way, in Can Barça they would do without their highest salary since the departure of Antoine Griezmann to Atlético de Madrid. The English media assures that Newcastle United wants to make a first declaration of intent by incorporating him and Aaron Ramsey, who is not usually finding a place at Juventus.
There are still no specific figures, but the market value of Philippe Coutinho has fallen in these three years from 90 to 30 million euros. In addition, he ends his contract in 2023 and with a fairly high salary, the transfer that the English team may be willing to pay may be less.
At the sporting level, a sale of the Brazilian would not mean great changes as he is not a regular starter and, in the sport, it would allow to continue adjusting the salary limit and generate a gap for renewals such as those of Ansu Fati, Pedri González or Pablo Páez “Gavi” , with a contract until 2022, and Ronald Araújo, linked until 2023.
