Coutinho admits he may need to leave as Hazard drops massive Chelsea hint
Chelsea transfer target Philippe Coutinho has reportedly admitted that leaving Barcelona during the summer transfer window may be the best thing for his career.
Coutinho is regarded as one of the finest creators in Europe and was supposed to be the long-term successor to Andreas Iniesta at the Camp Nou, but he has failed to make the kind of impact this season that made him a Liverpool superstar in the Premier league.
And that has led to a lot of speculation that the £142 million rated midfielder could be sold at the end of the season, with some reports even suggesting that Barcelona are willing to cash in if we meet the £65 million valuation, a significant drop in the price of the Brazilian star.
And now reports on Sport have claimed Coutinho has admitted leaving Barcelona this summer may prove the best thing for his career, as the Brazilian has struggled since joining the club from Liverpool in January 2018.
The reports come just a few days after Chris Sutton welcomed the possible arrival of Coutinho, recently stating: “It’s not easy and it has been difficult for him/
“I’ll say it’s possible [for Coutinho to return to England].
“Maybe Chelsea can sign players, potentially if they get this overruled, but it does look unlikely.”
Meanwhile, Eden Hazard has dropped a hint that he is ready to snub a big money move to Real Madrid and stay .
Hazard has been in top-class form for Chelsea this season and is the club top scorer in the Premier League with thirteen goals, but despite his impressive performances, the headlines have all been talking about the fact that Madrid are keen on a transfer deal.[the_ad id=”164″]
The Spaniards have had a terrible season this year and have had to re-hire Zinedine Zidane in hope that the Frenchman can bring the glory moments back to the club, and it is widely believed that the Spaniards are ready to spend close to £100 million to finally secure a deal for Hazard.
Hazard recently fuelled speculation about his future by admitting that he will wait and see about the links to Madrid in the summer transfer window.
“I’m not working on that right now,” Hazard told VTM News.
“I want to shine with Chelsea for a few months and try to win the Europa League. This week I think about the Red Devils and then back to Chelsea. Then we’ll see. ”
But During a Q&A with Belgian outlet HLN, Hazard was asked to choose between the blue of Chelsea and the white of Real Madrid, to which he replied: ‘Blue!’
