According to the Catalan newspaper, Barcelona’s main priority is the signing of a right-back, but they are also in a position to make “a market statement” in Coutinho.
Sport explains Barca have “a very good relationship” with the player’s agent Giuliano Bertolucci, with the Brazilian cropping up in several conversations.
The former Inter ace is thought to be “the player with the best Barca profile that currently exists in the market”, given his “quality, combination game and international experience”.
Paris Saint-Germain have also been credited with an interest in Coutinho, although he “doesn’t like their sporting project that much”.
