Emerging reports hint that Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona might be planning what seems like a dirty deal with English Premier League side Chelsea.
This is after it was claimed that the Catalans are trying to lure the West London side into agreeing to a new swap deal that will have Philippe Coutinho join the Stamford Bridge for Belgium international Eden Hazard to join the Camp Nuo.
Suggestions are that the step will be a betrayal to Real Madrid who are believed to have had an agreement with the Blues for the player.
Recall that the star player had declared his open love for the Los Blancos with the club alleged to have opened talks for him and already preparing for his arrival at the end of the season.
El Gol Digital reported that Barcelona are trying to take advantage of Chelsea’s interest in the Brazilian international Coutinho to hijack the deal for Eden Hazard from Real Madrid.
Philippe Coutinho is reported to be unhappy at the Camp Nuo over his lack of regular playing time and he is keen to find regular football elsewhere while Barcelona are alleged to be willing to let him as they have got French international Ousmane Dembele to serve as a cover.
