Coutinho Could Join Inter On 2 Year Loan As Part Of Deal That Would Send Lautaro Martinez To Barcelona
There is a chance that Inter could acquire Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona in the upcoming Summer transfer window according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.
Coutinho is currently out on loan at reigning German champions Bayern Munich who have an option to turn his stay into a permanent one but this report and several others in the media as of late state that they have no intention of paying the €120 million clause.
Barcelona are said to be very keen on signing Lautaro Martinez from Inter and are hoping to reduce the price they pay by offering some players in return.
Coutinho could well be one of those players. As per the report, Barcelona could extend his contract by a further season to 2024 and then send him on a two year loan to Inter as part of the deal.
This season Coutinho has made 32 appearances across all competitions in which he has scored nine goals and provided eight assists.
