Is this quest going to be the major talking point of the summer when it comes to incoming transfers?
The last time we dabbled with the speculation linking the Brazilian midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, with a move to Stamford Bridge, we weren’t getting our hopes too high – chelseas-hopes-of-signing-brazilian-midfielder-get-that-bit-tougher-as-more-clubs-declare-an-interest – however, today, here at Vital Chelsea, we’re slightly more optimistic.
According to The Sport, Chelsea are making progress when it comes to possibly bringing the 27-year-old Barcelona player to West London.
Our quoted source implies that Coutinho’s agents have held discussions with the club.
However, it’s also suggested that Barcelona are keen for a buy option to be part of any deal and if that is the case then it could involve a significant fee.
Could that be the stumbling block when it comes to getting this deal across the line?
Are you in favour of Coutinho joining Chelsea?
