COUTINHO ‘WOULD BE GOOD’ FOR BARCELONA-RIVALDO
Brazil legend Rivaldo believes Liverpool’s Phillippe Coutinho would be a great signing for Barcelona.
The Brazilian has flourished into one of the best players in Premier League and has attracted the attention of other European powerhouses despite being committed to Anfield till 2020.
Barcelona have been one of the admirers of the player and Rivaldo believes a close friendship with Barcelona star Neymar would prompt him to join the Blaugrana.
“In my opinion, he’s a great player and a player who knows Neymar well,” Rivaldo told Sky Sports. “I think they are both friends – players who stand out.
“I think that this transfer might happen because Barcelona is always going to attract the best, isn’t it?
“He is one of the players who stands out and I believe that this transfer – if he goes to Barcelona – would be a good thing for Barcelona for sure.
“He is a player who would definitely help Barcelona. Of course, Barcelona is a big club, but with a player like him, it would definitely be a big help.”
