Coutinho is coming back to Liverpool?

Barcelona are hoping to bring back Philippe Coutinho to Liverpool this winter already.

Philippe Coutinho moved to Barcelona from Liverpool in the winter of 2018 for 160 million euros. It seemed that this was the perfect transfer for the Catalans, because under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp, the Brazilian not only played excellently on the wing, but also tried himself in new roles of a drawn forward and attacking midfielder.

Barça took him to replace Neymar, but in less than three years he never managed to become a line-up player at the club. Therefore, Philippe went on loan to Bayern and, together with the team of Hansi Flick, destroyed Blaugrana 8:2 in the Champions League quarterfinals. But, having returned to Camp Nou, he faced a presidential election, financial difficulties and a lack of playing practice.

The plus to all the problems is that under Coutinho's contract, if he plays a few more matches, Barcelona will have to pay additional bonuses to Liverpool. Of course, Laporta does not want to do this. For this reason, El Chiringuito TV believes that the president of the club insists on the transfer of the Brazilian in the winter.

Of the obvious contenders for Coutinho, Liverpool and Newcastle are named. We are not sure that Jurgen Klopp needs a midfielder who once traded the Reds for a more eminent project and did not manage to become an integral part of it. Besides, he was never good at pressing, which is necessary in Klopp's system of playing like air. But he would have gone well on the bench. Moreover, the price tag for him dropped to 20 million euros.

Newcastle may find him useful to start building historical succession. A football player with a name who still wants to prove to the football world that he can still play well with his ambitions and shenanigans. Isn't it a good reason to revive yourself in a new project? But it seems to me that after the turbulence at Barcelona, Coutinho will choose Liverpool because of the stability over the past three years. It is unlikely that he would risk putting an end of his career on the line in an obscure Saudi project.
