'Who wouldn't want Coutinho?' - Brazil boss Tite talks up Barcelona link

'Who wouldn't want Coutinho?' - Brazil boss Tite talks up Barcelona link”

Coutinho could play in that role.

Neymar has enjoyed another strong season alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at Barcelona, where the trio have combined to score over 100 goals for the third successive campaign.

"I do not want to be pretentious about Barcelona, but who would not want a player like Coutinho, with his magic, his ability to invent and create, to change the rhythm and to build play? He is an ideal player for Barca".

Brazil coach Tite says Barcelona should make a move for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho, amid reports in Spain that they want to pair the Liverpool man with compatriot Neymar at Camp Nou.

"Look, if I were [Jurgen] Klopp or [Zinedine] Zidane I would fight in every way to keep one, and try to sign the other", he told Sport.

'Just to be clear, I'm talking hypothetically; there's Sergio (Busquets) and two articulators, (Ivan) Rakitic and (Andres) Iniesta, who are the thinkers of the team.

Rumours of a move to Barcelona followed Coutinho throughout his impressive season, and Liverpool fans will be hoping that continental qualification puts an end to the persistent rumours, with Klopp now looking ahead to what could prove to be a huge transfer window for the Reds. "There was one goal [for Brazil against Paraguay] they were brilliant for, Neymar on the left, Coutinho coming in to the middle".

Coutinho has already played down talk of a move to Barcelona after the attacking midfielder underlined his desire to become a Liverpool great.

"In Liverpool, Coutinho plays for the left, but the important thing is that he performs the same function for the national team".

Barca's attack now comprises Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez so it's not immediately clear where Coutinho would fit in from the off, but Tite envisages him fulfilling a deeper role. "We will only see this when we do it".
