Three days ago, we carried a report from Mundo Deportivo, who explained that Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for Philippe Coutinho and Malcom after the end of the season.
Today’s edition of another Catalan newspaper Sport now claims the Premier League would be the ‘most likely destination’ for the 26-year-old, if he decides to leave the La Liga winners in the summer.
Having already experienced the top flight club competition in England with Liverpool in the past, a return to the league could be a possibility.
Out of the clubs in England, Chelsea is outlined as ‘one of the possible destinations’, provided the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) lifts the transfer sanctions imposed by FIFA.
If CAS postpones the transfer ban, then the Blues will have to invest heavily in the transfer market knowing that they may not be allowed to strengthen in the next two transfer windows.
Sport claims Coutinho could be a replacement for Eden Hazard as the Belgian is more or less expected to join Real Madrid.
Should Chelsea not be allowed to register new players for the next two transfer windows, then a move to Paris Saint-Germain could be an option for the former Inter Milan man.
