Barcelona looking to sell Philippe Coutinho in January

1 min read

Barcelona are reportedly keen to sell Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old returned to Camp Nou over the summer after a successful loan spell at Bayern Munich and has been a regular for Ronald Koeman’s side this season, making 11 appearances in all competitions.

The Brazil international has contributed three goals and two assists in all competitions, although he has largely struggled to show his best form for the Catalan giants.

According to Diario ARA, Barca are keen to move the South American on during the winter transfer window in order to trim the wage budget as the club continue to deal with the financial issues caused by the coronavirus outbreak earlier this year.

The report claims that Coutinho is one of the highest-paid players in the squad but his performances have not justified the outlay.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were all credited with an interest in the former Liverpool playmaker over the summer.
