Since returning to Barcelona from his loan period with Bayern Munich in 2020, Philippe Coutinho’s condition with the Blaugrana has increasingly shown no positive words. Besides often suffering from prolonged injuries, he is also rarely trusted to be a starter.
In the summer transfer window of 2021, Barca actually had plans to release Coutinho permanently. But it didn’t happen, because it was difficult for the club to find a team that wanted to use the services of this Brazilian passport player.
Despite failing to release him at the start of the 2021/22 season, Coutinho still has the opportunity to leave Camp Nou in January 2022. Because, Football Espana reports that Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur want to bring in as loan players.
Barca, who wanted to release Coutinho due to high salary problems, made the club reportedly want to ask interested clubs to be willing to pay half the salary of the former Liverpool player, worth 200 thousand pounds per week.
If both Arsenal and Spurs are willing to do that, then the defending Copa Del Rey champions will not think long about releasing him, considering that Barcelona still have problems from a financial perspective.
