European football expert Julien Laurens has told the likes of Chelsea that Philippe Coutinho is set for a Premier League move this summer.
Despite the fact Eden Hazard has been in spectacular form for us over the course of this season, and despite his brilliance, all headlines have been about his exit.
And according to reports in the media owner Roman Abramovic wants unhappy Barcelona star Coutinho to come in and help fill the void of the Belgian when he leaves.
Now Laurens has handed us a boost in their chase and claimed that Coutinho is heading to the Premier League, because Paris Saint-Germain would not be able to afford the Brazilian.
“How? With what money?” he said on ESPN FC.
“There’s no room anywhere in the wage bill for Coutinho, as a transfer fee for Coutinho.
“It’s not even a position that is there priority.
“So for me it’s, and from what I’ve heard from the club, there’s nothing in that story at all.”
Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri has dropped a massive hint that he is leaving.
Sarri has done a fantastic job this season and managed to get the club back inside the Champions League places, aswell as adding the Europa League cup to the cabinet and beating off arch-rivals Arsenal in the process.
However, the Italian has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past 12 months and there has been reports in the media over the past few days suggesting thathe has agreed to sign for Juventus,
And after he reportedly told the hierarcy about his desire to leave the club, he has now dropped a massive hint that he is heading back home.
Sarri said on the Sky Sports website: “For us Italians the call of home is strong, I feel that something is missing. It has been a heavy year. I begin to feel the weight of distant friends, elderly parents I rarely see. But at my age I only make professional choices.
“I won’t be able to train for 20 years. It’s hard work, the bench. When I return home to Tuscany I feel like a stranger. I have slept [there] thirty nights in the last few years.”
