Coutinho is currently recovering from an injury to his right ankle, and Bayern Munich’s medical staff hopes to be ready to play before June 27, the end date of the German Bundesliga.
According to the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, the Barcelona administration does not intend to exchange Coutinho with players, but rather to sell and financially benefit from it to finance other deals.
“Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City clubs have contacted agent Kia Jurabchian and Barcelona management, while informally there is interest from Newcastle to include him,” she added.
“Coutinho wants to return to the Premier League, and Chelsea is his favorite team,” she noted.
The newspaper reported that Barcelona set Coutinho’s sale value between 80 and 90 million euros, and any club that agrees to pay this value will receive it, as the auction will be open.
