Philippe Coutinho to leave Barcelona for starring role elsewhere

Philippe Coutinho has failed to convince himself at role in Barcelona.

Barcelona have decided to sell the Brazilian playmaker in the upcoming transfer window who is set to return from his loan spell with Bayern Munich over the summer.

In his loan spell at Germany, Coutinho has not been able to perform at his optimum and has scored nine goals and providing eight assists across 32 games which resulted in the Bavarians opting against enabling the buyout clause set for the Copa America winner.

Even though Philippe Coutinho has displayed inconsistent performances over the last two seasons he has been on the radar of many Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Newcastle and Tottenham who feel that they could benefit from signing the attacker and in turn revive his career.

This is because the former Liverpool midfielder has proved that he can play in the Premier League by providing outstanding performances in his spell at the Anfield where he spent six years before joining the 2018-2019 La Liga champions for 145 million euros.

According to Goal, ex-Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has urged Jose Mourinho to sign the playmaker on a season long loan deal with an option to buy, similar to the arrangement the La Liga leaders had made with Bayern Munich. Bent believes that Coutinho can become a superstar for Tottenham and help them provide more effectiveness in the final third in the upcoming season.

Barca could try and trigger a swap deal for their young transfer target Giovani Lo Celso who could fill the void of Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal who are on the verge of leaving the Camp Nou over the summer. However, the team from England might not agree to sell the Argentina international as they have signed him this season for a sum of 32 million euros.
