Barcelona playmaker keen on PSG switch

Philippe Coutinho Responds To Criticism Over His Goal Celebration

Philippe Coutinho’s future at Barcelona continues to remain under the cloud amidst reports linking him with an exit. And now, Spanish publication Sport have claimed that the Brazilian playmaker wants to swap the Catalans for French champions Paris Saint Germain.

Coutinho arrived at Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 for a £142m fee which also made him the club’s most expensive signing. However, the 27-year-old has failed to live up to the pressure that came along with the gigantic price tag and endured a turbulent one-and-a-half year spell at the Nou Camp.

Paris Saint Germain have reportedly contacted the playmaker’s agents and are negotiating a deal for the attacker. With Barcelona also rumoured to be targeting a deal for Neymar, Coutinho could well be used as a sweetener to speed up things.
