Philippe Coutinho decided to leave Liverpool last transfer period and join Barcelona for a maximum amount of 160 million euros. The Brazilian says in conversation with Sport that he was well received by the Catalan superpower. At Barça Coutinho was reunited with Luis Suárez, with whom he joined Liverpool.
“We played together at Liverpool and when I was drawing with them, he really helped me a lot. Other players by the way, especially those who spoke Spanish and Portuguese. Those languages resemble each other,”Coutinho explains, who went up a lot with the Uruguayan attacker,” We were always together and from that a great friendship came into being.
Before Coutinho joined the Reds, he played at Internazionale. The story circulated that in the past the game maker had a trial period at Real Madrid, the arch rival of Barcelona, but Coutinho denies:”I? Real Madrid? No, no, no….. I don’t know, it was in the media…. I was very young and at the age of sixteen I had an Inter offer. That’s what happened, I signed at Inter.
Do you expect Philippe Coutinho to succeed at Barcelona?
