Barcelona Set to Abandon Coutinho Chase

Barcelona Set to Abandon Coutinho Chase

Are Barcelona set to end their pursuit of the Liverpool attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho?

One news source says that could be the case with Barcelona becoming increasing reluctant with Liverpool`s refusal to sell their Brazilian asset.

The English media source, the Daily Express has picked up on something covered by the Spanish news source Don Balon, whereby the inference is given that Barcelona are set to look elsewhere.

Currently in Barcelona`s sights is somebody who has experience of life at the club, namely Thiago Alcantara.

The 26-year-old is currently on the books of Bayern Munich, having learnt his trade at the famed Barcelona academy.

Thiago, whose brother Rafinha, is a member of the current Barcelona squad, left the Camp Nou in 2013.

However, our referenced sources are reporting that 26-year-old Thiago is now looking to leave the Allianz Arena to make a return to Spain.

It seems the perfect answer to end the Coutinho saga don`t you think?
