Tottenham fans reacted on Twitter to reports that Barcelona backed Philippe Coutinho’s preference for a move to Spurs – ahead of Newcastle. Spurs fans reacted on Twitter, with many supporting the Brazilian’s arrival.
Coutinho, 29 years old, is playing sublime at Barcelona. With the club looking to cash out to reduce its wage bill, those underperforming with big paychecks will be the first to leave. Brazilian international Coutinho tops that list.
The former Liverpool man has been regularly linked with a return to the Premier League. Tottenham are said to be one of the interested clubs, while cash-rich Newcastle have emerged as an option since their takeover.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Coutinho is a target for both Spurs and Newcastle. Both are said to have made the offer. But there are also reports that Coutinho would rather move to Spurs than Newcastle.
What do Tottenham fans think about signing Coutinho, ahead of Newcastle?
Coutinho, at his best, is one of the best players in European football. That has been proven, when Barcelona spent more than 100 million pounds to lure the former Inter star to the Nou Camp. Now, he has no value anywhere nearby.
Poor form or confidence at Barcelona even led to him being loaned out to Bayern Munich, where he appeared indifferent. Meanwhile, Spurs lacked creativity in midfield – unable to replace Christian Eriksen with Dane gone.
Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to reports the club have made an offer – and Coutinho likes them to come to Newcastle. Many thought he would be a good signing for Antonio Conte’s side.
