Hi ed002 happy new year to you.
Are any clubs showing interest in coutinho from Barcelona?
I think its fair to say that things havnt worked out for him there.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is knocking on the door Ken, but he becomes a token that can be exchanged.}

Thanks 002.
Im no transfer expert but on the face of it, it looks to me that they over paid substantially for both coutinho malcolm and dembele in particular and that they have not lived up to their billing.
As you say using them in part exchange for other players might be the way they can get them moved on.
2 very good players i don't know much about malcolm.
I thought city might be interested in coutinho and psg dembele.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have never shown an interest in Pipco Ken.}

I agree Ken, the last few windows signings haven't been as successful as what everyone thought for Barcelona. And they haven't come cheap either with Counting and Denver being very huge outlays. Will these failings have a more long term effect? And the bigger issue is not many teams seem keen to take them away either and even then not many can pay anywhere close to what Barcelona bought them for. A situation little similar to Pogba, not many sides able to outright buy them and player exchanges might be best option.

Damn this autocorrect. I meant Coutinho and Dembele not Counting and Denver.

{Ed002's Note - The escalation in prices mean that trades are becoming more viable at the higher end.}
