Reports today are that Liverpool, as we said yesterday, in no way will act crazy to win a massive transfer involving Youri Tielemans. A fee of £75million would be the price and that would be silly to splash out, if you are not desperate.Embed from Getty Images
The key for Brendan Rodgers this summer is to keep his best players off load fringe players far from a starting position and also be able to add to those areas that are essential to bring that CL place to the club and also fight for more silverware in the cups, and of course try to win the Europa League, which should be a certain goal this season.
We do see a central defender chase is one with yet more names linked with the club and one is of course Turkey international Ozan Kabak, but also the Uruguay international Sebastian Caceres from Club America in Mexico.
Philippe Coutinho is said to be a bit of the radar due to his heavy wage demands and also being a player a bit out of the league for Leicester, but TCF feel that this could be the perfect fit for both player and club, as Barca is ready to find a balanced way out of the partnership.
A number of websites and pundits have already called off the move and says Leicester are in no way able to make such a move possible, but TCF does not agree to that as the following scenarios are possible. Leicester could decide to go all in and buy him out of his contract which is rolling until 2023, that looks unrealistic, but a loan move doesn’t.Embed from Getty Images
Barca is desperate to get their payroll lowered and if Leicester are able to pay out a part of his current salary it would be a possible look in and also a way to get Philippe Coutinho. There are also risks regarding Coutinho as he has struggled with a knee problem and for most of last season been out with a serious injury, this could also be a negotiable part to take into consideration.
TCF does not believe that Philippe Coutinho will join Leicester on a permanent deal, but as Bayern Munich did, take him on loan with an option to buy if things works out, and with the player turning 30 in a year, few or no other club will be willing to pay out of the blue to get him in, so that is why we believe this could be happening and it will of course be a fantastic move.
Another fact and doubt that could be taken in to consider about Philippe Coutinho is his move to Bayern that failed as they didn’t pursuit a clause to buy him after his loan period ended. He failed to impress as much as you had hoped at Bayern Munich, and since returning to Barca as said above, injuries have occurred, and the form and current situation might be something that will be seen as a possible way to get the player in on a cut salary loan price.Embed from Getty Images
