Barcelona President Joan Laporta hopes to cash in on the sale of Philippe Coutinho. According to Sport, the Spanish club is trying to restructure due to the economic crisis. The Catalans sold several players last summer and there are still names that will have to leave the club. Defender Samuel Umtiti is one of them. At the same time, Laporta is also looking to sell the midfielder Coutinho.
The Brazilian has not been able to become a player in the main squad of Barcelona since he joined the team from English Liverpool. The main addressee where Coutinho will be offered will be the English “Newcastle”.
