While Philippe Coutinho still does not manage to go up the slope at FC Barcelona, the Catalan club would now be looking for a way out after the endorsement of Xavi in this sense.
Philippe Coutinho is becoming a thorn in the side of FC Barcelona. Recruited at a gold price from Liverpool in January 2018 and receiving colossal emoluments, the Brazil international has never managed to win at the Catalan club. Worse, his year on loan at Bayern Munich in 2019/2020 did not revive him at all and he spent much of last season injured. Thus, to reduce its payroll and garner cash, the FC Barcelona has been trying to find him a good exit for a long time. But this is clearly not an easy thing, and things do not seem to be improving.

Both because of his salary and his athletic performance, any interested clubs would be reluctant to pay any money to get him back. Xavi would have given his approval for a solution to be found, namely a departure, but there is no indication that this will be possible this winter therefore. To see how all this can be resolved, especially since Philippe Coutinho would not currently be mentally at best in this context.
