Barcelona - Coutinho Out Mbappe In?
That`s the crazy suggestion being bandied about!
The world of football works in mysterious ways and, usually, I wouldn`t rule anything out.
However, a piece of transfer speculation I stumbled upon this morning seems so far-fetched that it errs towards the realms of being totally dismissible.
However, we`ll see what you think!
After eventually wrestling Philippe Coutinho away from Liverpool, for a fee of around, with add-ons, £142 million, it`d seem inconceivable that a move away from the Camp Nou, for Coutinho, would be making the transfer speculation.
But, that is precisely the case!
The news source, El Pais, is running with the inference that the French outfit, Paris Saint-Germain, are looking to arrange a swap deal.
The swap deal, according to our source, would see Philippe Coutinho move to Paris with the young French striker, Kylian Mbappe coming to Barcelona.
Seemingly, the deal is based on the suggestion that Neymar, who left Barcelona for Pairs last summer for a world record fee, is said to be unhappy with Mbappe.
Therefore, in an attempt to appease he who must be obeyed, the suggestion is that Paris Saint-Germain will do their utmost to bring his close friend to the club.
You couldn`t make it up could you?
