Barcelona has lost patience with Philippe Coutinho, therefore they will offload the Brazilian in the summer. The main reason for their decision is because of Philippe Coutinho ineffectual performance against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final.
The 26-year-old player became Barcelona’s all-time record signing in January 2018 when he joined from Liverpool. Barcelona pays a deal worth up to a 142 million euro including add-ons. However, the Brazilian has struggled to live up to expectations since.
He was jeered by Barcelona’s supporters during their 3-0 win at Camp Nou in the first leg when he was withdrawn for right-back Nelson Semedo on the hour mark. Ernesto Valverde made the exact same substitution at Anfield, on their first leg, which ends up in a miserable defeat 4-0.
And it’s not only Barcelona’s supporters who have been left underwhelmed by Philippe Coutinho’s performance in Spain but also the media. He is describing as a lazy player and rated 0/10 for his performance in the Champions League semi-final match.
Philippe Coutinho Is Running Out Of Time
The media is reporting that Philippe Coutinho is running out of time to salvage his Barcelona career. A reliable insider told online slot game Malaysia that Philippe Coutinho is no longer Barcelona’s player and that’s been made clear. He certainly will leave in summer.
His early career at Santiago Bernabeu was not that bad. He made a reasonable start to his Barcelona career, helping the club win La Liga and the Copa Del Rey during his opening six months. However, he has been increasingly singled out for criticism this term.
Philippe Coutinho has scored 11 goals in 52 appearances for Barcelona in all competition this season. It’s far below the expectation, let alone the fact he’s the most expensive player in Barcelona right now.
There’s been a rumor about Philippe Coutinho’s future. It’s reported that he wants to go back to Premier League. So far, he linked with Manchester United and Chelsa as the most possible suitors.
