Wanted to go last summer....the club begged him to stay and he didnt play for a while because he was sulking. Now he has a second chance....he had to go now as he could get injured in the second half of the season and miss that chance once and for all. He paid 11M of his own money to make this happen so he was desperate to go.....good luck to him, who would not want to play there ?terrya1965 wrote:If they buy a new keeper and another central defender,they will have a better team.Courtinio is a class player,but why keep an unhappy player that is going to upset the apple cart.I do think he should have stayed till the end of the season.Don`t know why they didn`t when Barcelona have virtually won the League and he can`t play CL?Shortshanks wrote:And of course they now have to strengthen the massive gap that has been left by his transfer !!
Who knows why he left now?Maybe,they have something up that sleeve?
I think Barca will concentrate all their resources in acquiring Griezmann next summer and so wanted Coutinho done now
