It's safe to say that being a big-name signing doesn't always translate into success. If not, just ask Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho. The Catalans broke the bank to sign him some years ago, yet he could never replicate his performances at Liverpool.
Coutinho has struggled ever since leaving Anfield and his contract has been a huge nightmare for Barcelona. They even have to pay more for him when Liverpool won the UEFA Champions League, albeit he wasn't on the team anymore.
Now, however, it seems like his nightmare spell is finally set to come to an end, as the Brazilian playmaker is eager to leave the club and is drawing interest from three teams. Barcelona are desperate to sell him to try and mitigate the financial impact of his deal.
Transfer Rumors: 3 Teams Want To Sign Philippe Coutinho
Multiple teams have expressed an interest in signing Brazil forward Philippe Coutinho, 29, from Barcelona, according to reports by Spanish outlet Sport and BBC Sports News.
English club Leicester City wants to sign Philippe Coutinho, which doesn't come as a surprise considering that Brendan Rodgers already coached him during his time at Liverpool. Perhaps, that's just what he needs to get his career back from the ground.
Italian giants AC Milan are also keeping tabs on the Brazilian flop. He's familiar with Serie A from his time at Inter Milan and they're in some need of playmaking. They have a history of signing struggling players so it's not exactly shocking.
And last but not least, we find the Nerazzurri, the team that didn't exactly trust him to become a star earlier in his career. Inter want to make a splash in Europe next season and believe that pairing him with Lautaro Martínez or Romelu Lukaku would be a step in the right direction.
