First of all we have to remember that FC Barcelona have not secured the transfer of the Brazil international star Phillipe Coutinho, at least not yet anyway. But when Barca really want a player and are serious about getting them the chances are usually pretty strong that they will succeed, so with Metro reporting that officials from the Catalan club are in England to get him I think the chances are good.
If you agree then it might be the perfect time to get in with a bet on Barcelona to win either the Spanish La Liga title or the Champions League this season before the odds are cut and you can always use a betting tips site like ProfitAccumulator to get some pointers on what might be the best way to maximise your chances.
Barca have never been quite the same since their midfield magician Xavi Hernandez left and with Andres Iniesta getting older and not having quite the same impact I think Coutinho in the number 10 role would really improve them. It is not just his impact that would help Barcelona’s trophy chances either, because with Sky Sports reporting the possibility of PSG persuading Neymar to leave the Nou Camp this summer the arrival of his international team mate from Anfield might just change that.
You could even look at PA to see if it is worth putting a bet on whether Neymar will stay or go or if Coutinho will sign for Barcelona this summer, but if he does I think it will make Barcelona a very tough team to beat in any competition.
