Barcelona spent a whopping £142m fee to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, as the Brazilian was one of the best players in the Premier League at the time.

Coutinho lit up the Premier League and scored some fantastic goals at the club, but failed to impress for the La Liga giants.

After struggling for Barcelona, Coutinho was then sent on loan to Bayern Munich last summer, but he hasn’t been at his best too in the Bundesliga.

Barcelona are now ready to cut their losses and sell Coutinho for almost half the price they paid Liverpool to sign him.

The Daily Express claim Barcelona are so desperate to offload Coutinho, they have slashed his price tag ahead of the summer window to just £77m.

The Blues are among the Premier League clubs being linked with Coutinho, as Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United have all been linked with him.
