Over the years, Paris Saint-Germain have hired a few Barcelona players.
Maxwell, Neymar, Rafinha Alcantara, and most recently, Lionel Messi, have all arrived at the Parc des Princes from Camp Nou. It is now believed that they are planning to move to another Barca star in Ousmane Dembele, who will be a free agent this summer.
That may not be the end of it, however, as a report from El Nacional reports that Neymar is pushing for the French capital club to sign Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho from the Catalans.
The 29-year-old has been on the bench for four years at Barcelona, having reached an agreement for a club-record from Liverpool in January 2018. However, his time at Camp Nou has not been forgotten, as he has struggled to make history. aside from position under any managers who have played.
With the Blaugrana facing financial problems, they are determined to oust the former Inter Milan star and raise his huge salaries. Although he was reluctant to leave Camp Nou in the past, recent reports have shown that Coutinho has accepted his fate and decided to leave the club.
The decision was prompted by his need to play every year at the World Cup as he hopes to be selected for the Brazilian team. Now, according to the report, he could get help from a good friend and international team-mate, Neymar, who is urging PSG to sign Barça midfielder.
Both Neymar and Marquinhos are Coutinho’s best friends and are looking for him in France to help him win the Brazilian national team. However, any movement will depend on the green light from manager Mauricio Pochettinho.
However, the Argentine midfielder is looking to the future with speculation that PSG will be replaced by Zinedine Zidane. Therefore, any Coutinho move is unlikely to be a priority for Les Parisiens, despite Neymar’s desire to see his countryman arrive in the French capital.
