Barcelona are reportedly interested in sending Philippe Coutinho to Inter Milan in exchange for Lautaro Martinez. The Inter Milan attacker has been on the Barcelona radar for some time now.

Coutinho has been on loan at Bayern Munich this season and has recovered a bit of his swagger. The Brazilian lost confidence and much of the prowess at Barcelona that we loved to watch while he was at Liverpool.

If Inter are going to be forced to sell Martinez one way or another, getting a player the likes of Coutinho back might not be a bad option. When Coutinho is managed properly and has the chance to play a comfortable style of football, he’s great. Conte could make great use of the midfielder alongside a careful medical staff. This is one to keep an eye on.

Let us know in the poll below, or in the comments. I personally think it’s a great option if you’re forced to sell Martinez. Although, if you have the choice between a pile of cash or Coutinho, that becomes more difficult. This deal might only be on the table because of Barcelona’s touchy FFP situation.
