When it comes to Liverpool fans, Philippe Coutinho continues to be a source of contention. On the one hand, there are those who yearn for him to return to Anfield, wishing Jurgen Klopp will free him from his Barcelona nightmare and find the playmaker who terrorized Premier League defenses on a weekly basis.
On the other hand, there are many who believe he has made his bed at Camp Nou and should be allowed to lie in it, with the 29-year-old now looking like a pale replica of the player who departed Merseyside in January 2018, and Liverpool a far superior team than the one he left behind.
Barcelona are desperate to unload Coutinho and a number of other big names with less than three weeks left in the summer transfer window and two years left on Coutinho’s deal, despite Lionel Messi’s stunning move to Paris Saint-Germain not being enough to fix their financial problems.
He has won two La Liga titles and two Copa Del Reys in Spain since leaving Liverpool, as well as a Bundesliga title, the Champions League, and the DFB-Pokal while on loan at Bayern Munich.
