Philippe Coutinho at OM? There would be a possibility. Pablo Longoria could have his chances to enlist this fallen Barça star.
Philippe Continho’s days seem numbered at Barça. The Catalan club hopes to sell the player from this summer transfer window. Arrived for an astronomical sum of 120 million euros from Liverpool, the Brazilian turns out to be a total failure in the Blaugrana jersey. In financial difficulty, the club are expected to sell the former Inter Milan player for a derisory amount. Looking for a world-class striker, OM could believe in a player’s signature.
A few weeks ago, there were surprising rumors about OM’s interest in Philippe Continho. In view of the market value of the player, the Olympians do not seem to have the means to align themselves in this file. Nevertheless, there would be a door that would be open to snatch the Brazilian’s services next season.

The fall in the market value of Continho because of a clause! According to the Spanish media AS, Barca will pay Liverpool a 20 million euro bonus if Continho plays 100 games. Currently, the Brazilian has played 90 games for Barça. The Catalan club do not especially want to spend a hundredth more for the player. He would even be ready to support a club that wants to recruit Coutinho by taking charge of his XXL salary.
Pablo Longoria could therefore take this opportunity for a possible signing in the context of a loan. The Phocéens would help the Barcelonnais not to pay for this clause so that the player does not cross the 100-game mark. A win-win case!
