They revealed what number Coutinho will play in Barcelona
Barcelona’s new arrival, Philippe Coutinho, who signed his contract with the Catalans today and was officially presented to fans, will play with a Camp Toule No 14 t-shirt. The trick is emblematic because it played one of the club’s greatest legends – Johan Cruyff. The information has not yet been officially confirmed by the club, but according to Sky Sports it is certain. Currently, the number is occupied by Javier Mascherano, but the Argentine is expected to leave Barcelona and release it soon.
The “ten” with which Coutinho plays in Liverpool belongs to Lionel Messi. He assumed that the Brazilian could get No. 7, currently Arda Turan, who is also supposed to leave this month. There is a theory that “the week” will be kept for another major transfer goal for Barcelona next summer – Antoine Grizzman.
Today it became clear that Coutinho will miss the next three weeks because of a thigh injury. This means that in Barcelona they will have enough time to finalize the transfer of Mascherano and organize everything.
