Barcelona open to loaning out Nou Camp outcast Philippe Coutinho

According to Spanish publication Marca (h/t Daily Mail), Barcelona are willing to let Brazilian superstar Philippe Coutinho leave on loan after failing to find buyers for the 27-year-old.

If it happens, this will be Coutinho’s second loan in as many seasons following a disappointing transfer to Barcelona. The Catalans have failed to find takers willing to pay £72million for the player and have instead made up their mind to loan him out.

The Samba star has failed to hit the heights expected of him and is out of favour at the Nou Camp. The Blaugrana have failed to see the player showcase the game-winning ability he did at Liverpool.

Philippe Coutinho has failed to impress at Barcelona

Currently on loan at Bayern Munich, Coutinho has failed to meet the required expectations. He could be offered an escape route, with a number of Premier League clubs interested.

Tottenham are one of them and face competition from Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United. Bayern does have the option to sign him on permanently but have chosen not to take him permanently. The Brazilian has scored 9 goals and made 8 assists in 32 appearances for the Germans this season.

The ensuing coronavirus pandemic has also played a role in determining the player’s future in Nou Camp. A high-earner at Barcelona, the club is keen to get him off the wage bill with finances stretched during the indefinite postponement of football.

Philippe Coutinho has already impressed in the Premier League

Philippe Coutinho was a star at Liverpool

A bonafide star at Liverpool, Coutinho should have no problems in adjusting to the Premier League. He made more than 150 appearances in the English First Division during his time at Anfield.

The Brazilian still remains a potent player and already has the experience of playing in England. He could prove to be a shrewd signing given his quality and matchwinning ability. Whether Tottenham will get the player or not remains to be seen.
