Chelsea and Barcelona are still in talks for the transfer of Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho to Stamford Bridge in the summer, according to latest report by Spain-based newspaper, SPORT.

The report stated: “Barça and Chelsea have already started negotiations for the transfer of the Brazilian international. The contacts began after Bayern Munich, the club in which Coutinho is on loan, communicated to the Catalan team that they would not use the purchase option (120 million) that they have on the player until June 30.

“Negotiations between Chelsea and FC Barcelona will not be easy due to the economic issue. The Catalan team, which at the time paid 120 million euros for Coutinho, set a starting price of 90 million because agreeing to a lower one would mean assuming losses.”

They also said that Chelsea do not want to pay the stated figure but the player wants to return to the Premier League and a move to Chelsea appeals to him.

Barcelona signed Coutinho from Liverpool in January 2018 for £120 million but the midfielder has failed to live up to expectations at Camp Nou.
