Brazilian trio in contact with agents for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho
A return to Brazil is emerging as a serious option for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
Palmeiras have spoken to Coutinho's agents and told them they have no interest in bringing the Barcelona midfielder in on loan. The winners of the two most recent Copa Libertadores editions are one of three Brazilian clubs who have the financial muscle to pay a large part of his salary.
His agents have a fluid relationship with Palmeiras and Flamengo. Atletico Mineiro is the other club. Palmeiras at first were receptive but the last word was had by Abel Ferreira, the Portuguese coach. Loaning Coutinho was an option to help with their assault on the Club World Cup. However he would prefer a No 9.
Flamengo for now are the most likely.
Sport says Fla they are willing to pay 3m euros of his salary to have him on loan until June 30. Barcelona need the money to register Ferran Torres.
