Barcelona will be forced to drop حصہ 20million during the 2021-22 campaign if Philippe Coutinho makes his 100th appearance for the Catalan club. The Brazilian is currently on 90 appearances, and given manager Ronald Koeman’s confidence in the player for the upcoming campaign, he should reach the mark of the century.
The La Liga giants signed a record 2 142 million deal with Liverpool at Brazil International in January 2018, but the move is not over for the club. Coutinho has failed to replicate the form shown at Anfield since moving to Camp Nine, which has seen him spend more time than the first team.
The 29-year-old also spent a season on loan with Bundesliga companies Bayern Munich, where he scored a goal against his parents’ club on the way to lifting the Champions League trophy with the German club. Koeman’s arrival could see his fortunes change when he was under the Dutch manager in the first half of the last campaign before an injury reduced his season.
According to the Spanish publication Sport.It is only a matter of time this season before Coutinho returns from injury to make his 100th appearance for the Catalan organization. The moment he reaches the mark of a century, Barcelona have to pull out 20 million euros (17.1 million pounds) from Liverpool, which would not be ideal for a cash club.
Barcelona has worked all summer to reduce its wage bill and increase revenue. His uncertainty deprived him of Lionel Messi on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. He also helped strengthen rivals Atletico Madrid so that Antonin Griezmann could be released on loan on the last day of his transfer.
Koeman managed to bring in three players through free transfers, while adding one player on loan as Barcelona could not afford to distribute cash to any newcomers. He is hoping Coutinho can regain his Liverpool form and help Barcelona challenge for the La Liga title. With new signer Memphis Depp.
