Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho to be sold after Anfield collapse?

Barcelona have reportedly decided to sell Philippe Coutinho during the summer transfer window.
The Catalan giants spent £142m to sign Coutinho from Liverpool in January 2018, and the playmaker has scored 21 goals from 72 appearances in all competitions.

However, Coutinho has frequently received criticism for his overall contribution in a Barcelona shirt, and the Brazilian again failed to deliver as the Spanish side were eliminated from the Champions League by Liverpool earlier this week.

According to ESPN, that disappointment has pushed club officials into deciding that they will make Coutinho available for transfer ahead of next season.

Previous reports have suggested that Barcelona may be prepared to accept offers in the region of £105m, although it is unclear whether any club will be prepared to meet that figure.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked with an approach for the 26-year-old.
