Arsenal, Chelsea Target Set For Barcelona


Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho might be the biggest winner of the new managerial regime at Barcelona after it was revealed that the player will be given another chance to prove himself at the club despite the rumours linking him with Premier League teams like Arsenal and Chelsea.

Spanish newspaper Marca revealed that new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman wants to work with Coutinho who recently returned from a trophy laden loan spell at German champions Bayern Munich.

Philippe Coutinho has not had the best of form at Barcelona since his £142m move to the club from Liverpool in January 2018. He had a largely unsuccessful 18 months at the club before he was farmed out on loan to Bayern Munich at the start of the last campaign.

At Bayern Munich, Philippe Coutinho played his part as he helped the Bavarian giants win a treble for the second time in a decade but that was not enough to earn him a permanent deal.

Ronald Koeman was appointed the new Barcelona manager last month and the Dutch tactician has decided to hand Coutinho a lifeline.

As per Marca, Coutinho won’t leave Barcelona this summer unless an irresistible offer comes in for the former Liverpool playmaker.
