Since joining Barca in January 2018 for 160 million euros, Coutinho has only played 90 times and scored 24 goals. Last season, he had 14 games before taking a half-season break due to a knee injury. The Camp Nou team prioritized the liquidation of this player to remove capital and reduce the salary fund, but no team was willing to spend the required amount.
Therefore, Coutinho will still stay at Barcelona next season. In the opposite direction, coach Koeman confirmed that young star Ilaix Moriba is in a difficult situation because he wants to leave: “His situation is very bad. Moriba is only 18 years old and could be the future of the club. I don’t know what the club offers, but my advice is when you’re young, don’t think money is the most important thing. But it seems he and his agent think differently. I am very disappointed.”
Along with Moriba, the possibility of Pjanic and Umtiti’s departure in the rest of the summer market is also very large.
