With Barcelona related to players such as Lautaro Martinez and Neymar, there is a need for the Catalan club to transfer players to collect funds.
Phillipe Coutinho is their main man in this context. His selling may be subject to a substantial fee, as Barcelona is not willing to let him go for less than EUR 80 million.
The Argentine coach is the key contender to lead the new project at Newcastle, and it is understood that he would like to create a team around Coutinho, as he had before when he was in Espanyol.
With all this in mind, Mauricio Pochettino could have a huge say in the fortunes of the Blaugrana this summer. If Coutinho’s return to England comes to fruition, this would give Barcelona the cash injection that it needs to be able to get after its summer targets.
It could be a win-win situation, is a conclusion is that MARCA gave. Coutinho would be happy to return to the league where he had enjoyed his greatest successes, Pochettino would have a player he knows and loves, and Barcelona would have enjoyed a major payday.
