Agent opens up and announces when we can open talks to sign £130 million superstar Coutinho
Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho will only discuss any potential transfers when football is back to normal, according to agent Kia Joorabchian.
Coutinho has been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months as all indications suggest that he is leaving Barcelona in the summer after failing to make any sort of impact on the side.
We are favourites to land Coutinho in the summer window, with Brazilian legend Rivaldo even coming out and confirming that we are leading the chase to get a transfer deal done.
But despite all the rumours that wehave already made contact with Barcelona and the agent of Coutinho about a possible transfer deal, Joorabchian has come out and claimed that Coutinho will not talk about any possible moves right now.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Joorabchian said: “Philippe at the moment, he’s at Bayern, but he’s sidelined at the moment.
“He’s had an injury, he had an operation two weeks ago on his ankle and he is six weeks for recovery for that.
“That unfortunately means he’ll probably miss a chunk of the Bundesliga. Hopefully he’ll be fit for the tail end of the season.
“But in terms of the rumours? At the moment we have not spoken to anybody about any deals whatsoever.”
Coutinho is a move that many fans would like to see happen and many fans are hoping does happen, but his agent is right and any talks will have to wait until the Coronavirus pandemic is on hits way out and football is back to normal.
But when it does, we would be some serious FOOLS if we did not even attempt to bring him to London in the summer, we will need a player like him in the side when Willian sadly departs the club.
One Brazilian in, one out!
