Barcelona: Coutinho’s agent denies travelling to France to negotiate PSG move
Barcelona Catalans keen to offload midfielder
Barcelona are eager to include Philippe Coutinho in a deal to bring Neymar back to the Camp Nou but the former Liverpool player’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has denied that he is in France to negotiate terms with Paris Saint-Germain.
A Blaugrana delegation went to Paris on Tuesday to further discuss details of the 27-year-old forward’s potential move, with the Catalan side eager to drop the asking price by offering players as a makeweight.
Esporte Interativa had claimed that Joorabchian was also in Paris to address the conditions of Coutinho‘s possible transfer to the reigning Ligue 1 champions, but the agent himself has refuted those claims in comments made to Mundo Deportivo.
Although, PSG‘s financial demands for Neymar are considerably high, Thomas Tuchel is fond of Coutinho though Joorabchian denial brings into further doubt as to whether Barcelona will be able to offload the Brazilian this window.
