The Catalans were desperate to sign the Brazilian during the previous transfer window but Liverpool were able to hold onto their star player – with multiple interventions from the clubs owners.
But everyone is pretty confident that Barcelona will come back for Coutinho and will eventually get their man by the end of the season. And it seems that they are pulling every possible string to make it happen.
Suddenly out of nowhere Barcelona midfielder Paulinho has shared the story about his move from China to Spain and on top of that, he has advised Coutinho on exactly how he should approach the deal.
“I would advise him to be calm, to leave any anxiety aside. I also went through that when I was in China,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“You have to think about the decision you are going to make. I think that if he has the opportunity to come, he won’t regret it.”
Suddenly Paulinho making advising Coutinho on transfer matters?
Are Barca up to something again?
