5 possible destinations for Philippe Coutinho
Philippe Coutinho is a classy player who deserves more than what he's getting now at Anfield. A move to Barcelona perhaps?
It was only in January that Philippe Coutinho signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, and reportedly takes home £150,000-a-week. He’s now one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League. This wage is befitting as he’s undoubtedly become Liverpool’s talisman ever since the infamous Luis Suarez left for greener pastures.
But a player of such quality and ability shouldn’t be fighting for just top 4 finishes. Coutinho is destined for greater things beyond Anfield, he’s a player the whole world is talking about and watching very closely. On the international stage, he’s only 2nd in command to Neymar for Brazil. If that doesn’t tell you how good he is, I don’t know what will.
Here are 5 possible destinations for Philippe Coutinho.
#5 Inter Milan
As Inter currently sit 7th in Serie A, it’s clear that a major overhaul is needed at the San Siro. Last year, it looked as though this revamp had taken place when Chinese commerce group Suning bought them over in the summer, but funds were not made available instantly. It will be this summer instead where the great Italian club will embark on a transfer shopping spree.
To spark a revival, Coutinho should be the priority transfer target for the Nerazzurri. The Brazilian would seamlessly replace Eder in the starting line-up as the no.10 of the team. The 24-year old would thrive as the sole creator of chances at the San Siro, he would also be given freedom to attempt as many long shots as he pleases.
He’s a player that delivers under pressure and can take his team from obscurity to victory with one moment of brilliance.
