Brazilian legend urges £250,000-a-week Brazilian to make Premier League move, with Chelsea rumours rumbling on

Brazil legend Rivaldo reckons Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho should return to England this summer transfer window.

Coutinho has been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months as all indications suggest that he is leaving Barcelona in the summer after failing to make any sort of impact on the side.

He has not made the impact at Barcelona that many had hoped for after his move from Liverpool, and has even been shipped out to Bayern Munich for the last few seasons as the Spaniards didnt know what to do with the Brazilian.

And it has been claimed that Coutinho is eyeing up a summer move back to the Premier League, where the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and even Newcastle United are all eyeing up a potential transfer deal.

Now, with the transfer window open up and his agent talking to a number of clubs, Brazilian legend Rivaldo has urged the Chelsea target to make that move back to the Premier League, Rivaldo told Betfair: “Philippe Coutinho will soon return from his loan at Bayern to Barcelona, but I doubt he can revive his career there.

“His best option could be returning to English football where he spent the best seasons of his career and in which his qualities seem to be best suited, as he proved at Liverpool when he was one of the best players in the Premier League.”

Do Chelsea need to sign Coutinho this summer window? No they do not as they have enough quality in the midfield area already.

Should they make a move to sign Coutinho? Hell yes they should, he is the world class midfielder that will add 20-goals a season to the side, he is proven in the Premier League and would be a massive hit with the fans.
