While he never managed to win at FC Barcelona, Philippe Coutinho is still announced on the start, and the name of Newcastle has been mentioned for the Brazilian international. However, the Magpies would have other plans.
A true star in Liverpool , Philippe Coutinho took over the management of FC Barcelona in January 2018 to replace Neymar , who left for PSG a few months earlier. However, the Brazilian’s transfer looks like a flop. Philippe Coutinho never managed to impose himself and appears more like a burden today, while Joan Laporta seeks to replenish the coffers and reduce the payroll. Thus, Barça wanted to part ways with Coutinho during the last summer transfer window, but the contenders did not rush to secure his services. The takeover of Newcastle by the Saudi Arabian Sovereign Fund could, however, help the club's business, since Magies' interest in Coutinho has recently been raised. However, an offensive would not be on the agenda.
Coutinho finally failed by Newcastle?
According to information from El Nacional, Newcastle does not intend to take action for Philippe Coutinho . The new leaders of the English club would however have considered the arrival of the attacking midfielder, but his signing would be seen as too risky by Newcastle , wishing to bet on safe values for the launch of his project.
