Chelsea are reportedly in talks with the representatives of Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho over a summer transfer move to Stamford Bridge.

The 27 year old Brazilian is currently on loan at Bayern Munich but the German side are unwilling to make his loan move permanent after Coutinho failed to light up the Allianz Arena.

Chelsea are reportedly leading the race to sign Coutinho but Barcelona have given a condition for the transfer to be completed.

Chelsea want a loan deal for Coutinho with the Blues covering his £11.5m annual salary but Barcelona are demanding a mandatory purchase clause be inserted into the deal.

Barcelona are reportedly willing to reduce their price tag to £53m if Chelsea agree to buy Coutinho at the end of his loan deal at Stamford Bridge.
