Nike Advert Implies Barcelona Have Signed Coutinho

Nike Advert Implies Barcelona Have Signed Coutinho

Tomorrow the January transfer window officially opens.

Here at Vital Barcelona we fully expect speculation to ramp up dramatically relating to Barcelona upping the ante in their chase to land the Liverpool attacking midfielder, Philippe Coutinho.

However, it appears that whilst the chase is far from over, the Barcelona kit manufacturer, Nike, somewhat jumped the gun.

Nike have run an advertising campaign whereby Barcelona supporters were offered the chance to by a Barcelona shirt with Coutinho`s name emblazoned across the back, with the advertisement on the Nike website carrying the slogan,

'Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up Camp Nou.'

After having bids said to be of the magnitude of £72 million, £90 million and £114 million rejected in the summer, it remains to be seen how high Barcelona are prepared to go to bring the 25-year-old Brazilian to the Camp Nou.

As for the aforementioned advert, it has now been deleted from the Nike web-site, but do they know something the rest of us are not party to yet?
