According to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo, Ronald Koeman wants Philippe Coutinho to join his Barcelona squad next season.
Coutinho wasn’t quite him until he left Liverpool in favor of Barcelona. He certainly had his moments, particularly during his time with Bayern Munich, but consistency was something he really struggled with.
However, the Brazilian still believes he has a lot to offer at Camp Nou and apparently Ronald Koeman falls into a similar line of thinking and is willing to get involved in making that happen.
The Dutchman is facing his string of pressures ahead of the new campaign and some are wondering whether or not he is the right man for the job. If he keeps Coutinho in the first team, he could end up being the kind of “make or break” decision that defines his time there.
