Chelsea close in on transfer deal as Agent announces Brazilian desires to make Premier League move
The agent of Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho has revealed the midfielders desire to make a Premier League return.
Coutinho moved to Barcelona just a few seasons ago after making a big impression while in the Premier League and Liverpool, becoming one of the nest number 10’s in the game.
He was expected to make that move to the Camp Nou and develop into a real superstar, but for some unknown reasons, he failed to reach the levels at Barcelona that he did at Liverpool and was eventually shipped off to Bayern Munich for two seasons.
But despite a couple of solid seasons over in the Bundesliga, the German giants opted against making his move to the Allianz arena a permanent one and he will be offered to a number of clubs in the summer window.
Now, amid all the speculation, his agent Kia Joorabchian has made it clear the South American wants to return to the Premier League.
He told Sky Sports: “Everything is a possibility. After the Champions League game he played in England [against Chelsea] we had a long chat about it.
“The Premier League is something that he has always enjoyed playing in, and loved playing in, and would probably love to come back and play in.
“The question is what are going to be the financial conditions of all the clubs, including Barcelona and all the Premier League clubs at the end of this pandemic.”
We in need of adding some world class players and if they are to get back to the very top of the game, they need to try and sign players like Coutinho when they come onto the transfer market, they would be fools not too.
If we did want him, get him on a loan deal first, see if he is still any good and then offer him a more long-term contract next summer, that is not a big risk to take by the club is it?
It will just be interesting to see if we actually do make a move to try and sign the Brazilian in the summer[the_ad id=”164″]
