We really hope that this season isn’t Coutinho’s farewell tour.
But as seems to happen every campaign, our best player is gaining attention from one of Europe’s largest clubs – this time Barcelona.
And their superstar attacker Neymar really isn’t helping our cause, by unashamedly declaring in the media that Los Cules should sign our playmaker.
The Brazilian was speaking during a Gilette promo, which seems a little odd considering he can’t grow facial hair yet, and saluted his compatriot’s strengths.
‘There are many great players I would like to join me at Barcelona. One of them is Philippe Coutinho. He’s a great player and his style suits Barca,’ Neymar said.
If Neymar wants to play alongside his friend so badly, perhaps he should just sign for Liverpool…?
