PSG ready to make staggering offer for Coutinho

PSG ready to make staggering offer for Coutinho

Neymar and Mbappe fired PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season.

Coutinho only joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January this year, and is viewed by the La Liga champions as the successor to Andres Iniesta, who has just bid farewell to European football, joining Japanese club Vissel Kobe.

The world record of transfer window may get shattered as Paris-Saint Germain reportedly launches a very big bid for Barcelona superstar Philippe Coutinho.

Brazil superstar Neymar has reportedly told Paris Saint Germain to sign Barcelona striker Luis Suarez this summer.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo are now reporting that Barça club sources have made it clear that Coutinho will not be allowed to leave for anything less than his release clause figure - which is believed to be around the €400m (£350m) mark.

Fortnite Worlds Collide: What Is the New Worlds Collide Event?
The Fortnite Worlds Collide event appears to be the evolution point for Season 4's transformation into Season 5. Fans are expecting to see keymap landmarks switched out for new locations, which has already started to happen.

But according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona, at this current time, are not willing to let go of Coutinho, who scored two goals, made two assists and was one of Brazil's standout players at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Were PSG to stump up that astonishing amount of money, they would smash the world transfer record that they themselves set when they purchased Neymar from Barcelona for €222m (£198m) last summer.

Barcelona will surely be reluctant to sell the former Liverpool man - particularly after their primary transfer target Antoine Griezmann committed his future to Atletico Madrid.

Neymar has endured a tough last few months with a bad injury ending his season early in Paris and a hard World Cup campaign ending in an exit at the quarter-finals stage.

That form carried on to the worldwide stage, and Coutinho looked like one of the best players at the 2018 FIFA World Cup prior to their 2-1 quarter-final defeat to Belgium on Friday.
