Spanish champions Barcelona are bracing up for a bid from Chelsea for one of their players according to the report from popular media outlet Goal.
It was revealed that the five-time European champions are expecting a bid from Chelsea for Brazilian international star Coutinho as they search for a replacement for wantaway player Eden Hazard.
Apart from Chelsea, Philippe Coutinho has been linked with other European clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Premier League giants Manchester United.
Coutinho has not lived up to the expectations at Barcelona since his £116m transfer from Liverpool at the start of last year.
The former Inter Milan player could be the replacement for Eden Hazard at Chelsea with the Belgian international expected to leave Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid this summer.
Eden Hazard was asked about his future shortly after the Leicester City game on Sunday evening and his answer revealed that it’s a matter of when and if he will leave the club this summer.
The former Lille star has one year left on his current deal at Chelsea and the Blues are said to be demanding around £112m for him if Real Madrid wants to sign the Belgian international when the transfer window reopens this summer.
