Do they still owe us for him don't they?

 

So what about we've used the money to buy Alisson & VVD, take Coutinho back, and write off the debt?

 

If Edwards can pull a stroke like that, he needs his own religion.

I was just thinking this. What if we have him back and write off what they owe us plus remove the £100m on future transfers clause.

At a push I'd even throw in Mingolet and Moreno

The one where Hicks and Gillette are still in charge and we are now in the conference?

The fact that he ended up at East Thurrock Utd says it all

He was never going to replace Iniesta. Iniesta is virtually impossible to dispossess, he will not play a final ball unless it's 100% certain to arrive at the feet of one of his players. Coutinho bursts forward with the ball, plays risky passes, and shoots from outside the box whenever the opportunity arises. They are the polar opposite of each other in their mentality. Coutinho plays the English way. He's got much more in common with Gerrard than he does Iniesta.

Agreed. There's no one that could replace Iniesta and especially not someone like Coutinho. If they bought him for that reason, it reinforces the sentiment that their transfer strategy is pretty clueless. I don't think they know where to play him or what to do with him. The thought should've been more that he could be a poor man's Ronaldinho but definitely not Iniesta.

They are going to want at least 100m for him. No way are they getting that and even then I presume they will just have to give it to us.

If he is up for it get him in. Financially it must surely suit Barca. If we can jiggle the books do it.

1 press conference and a 30 yard screamer all will be forgotten.

Philippe Coutinho is reportedly set for crunch talks with Barcelona this week over his future.

 

The Brazilian midfielder has struggled for form this season and has failed to fill the void left by the injury to Ousmane Dembele.

 

Sport claim Coutinho will speak to Ernesto Valverde about his long-term prospects amid links to Manchester United and Liverpool.

 

The former Liverpool man has not scored in the league since the end of October and Valverde was apparently in “despair with the amount of errors he made in the 2-0 win over Girona on Sunday”.

 

Still, Valverde has not given up on the 26-year-old and wants to find out how to get him into the type of form which persuaded Barca to pay a club-record £142million for him last January.

 

Marca report that Coutinho, who has made 20 starts in all competitions this term, will be kept in the starting line-up in a bid to build his confidence, although when Dembele returns from injury his place will be in jeopardy.

 

Valverde did defend the No.10 this week though and is convinced he will improve.

 

“What I like about Coutinho is that he’s daring and he’s always prepared to take the opposition on,” said Valverde.

 

“He makes things happen. After that, sometimes things go your way, sometimes they don’t.

 

“He’s had good chances and the fact that he’s getting into those positions one-on-one with the goalkeeper is

really good.

 

“He’s not converted those chances this time – but he will.”

 

Don Balon recently claiming Barca would sell Coutinho if they received an offer of €150m. And there have been rumours he could be heading back to England – with Manchester United linked.

 

Liverpool have also been mentioned as suitors to re-sign their former star, while Don Balon stated Coutinho had been the subject of a €100m offer from Chelsea this month as they look to replace Eden Hazard, who is being tipped to sign for Real Madrid this summer.

Don Balón at the cutting edge of shock news there.
