The ‘ridiculous’ amount for which Barça could sell Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho’s future could be in Liverpool again. But not in the team in which he shone the most as a player, but in his citizen rival: Everton. According to the newspaper ‘The Sun’, the group ‘toffee’ is determined to try the signing of Coutinho this summer. Of course, it would always be a downward incorporation at the transfer level, since the British team is aware of the urgency that Barça has to get rid of important annual chips.

The aforementioned newspaper reports that Coutinho would even be looking for a home in Liverpool, a city that he knows perfectly after his stay in the ‘red’ team, there where he shone the most as a player, which led him to sign for Barça after the departure of Neymar -in the winter market of the 2017 season- 2018.

Everton would be willing to disburse about 40 million euros for the Brazilian, who is now injured in the knee. In fact, ‘Cou’ has only played 14 games after being seriously injured against Eibar in the last game of 2020. Ronald Koeman even recently assured that it would be difficult for Barça to participate in a game again before the end of this season.

If Everton’s interest is firm, it will be necessary to see if Barça is satisfied with a ‘low cost transfer” very far from the figures that the Catalan club paid for the Brazilian in his day (120 fixed + 40 in variables), although it is known by all that the great urgency of the Barça team in the short term is to lighten the salary mass of the culé first team.

What’s more, It must be remembered that if Coutinho plays 100 games with Barça -Now it adds up to 90-, the Catalan club will have to pay another 20 million euros to Liverpool, a payment corresponding to one of the clauses that were set in the transfer of the midfielder.
