£100 million South Amercian star Coutinho ‘casts doubt on future’ as Chelsea fans told Stamford Bridge move wanted

Barcelona star and Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho has one again cast doubt on his future with the Spanish giants.

Despite the fact Eden Hazard has been in spectacular form for Chelsea over the course of this season, and despite the fact he has helped the club achieve their goals of getting back inside the top four and win the Europa League, he ahs decided to leave the club for Real Madrid.

And according to reports in the media owner Roman Abramovic wants unhappy Barcelona star Coutinho to come in and help fill the void of the Belgian when he leaves.

The Brazilian has not made the impact that many expected since his move from Liverpool, and reports in the Spanish press have claimed that he could be sold at the end of the season, especially after the Champions League semi-final loss to the Reds.

Chelsea were looking at the Brazil international in a cut-priced deal, but any move for Coutinho would mean the Blues’ transfer ban would have to be frozen or lifted.

However, They have been boosted after Coutinho was asked about his future after Brazil’s 0-0 draw with Venezuela, saying on the Metro website: ‘I do not know, the future nobody knows, I am focused to play with the national team now.’

Pundit Duncan Castles has claimed that Coutinho DOES INDEED want to make that move and sign for Chelsea.

“The briefing I had last week was that Coutinho’s preference would be to go to Chelsea rather than Paris St-Germain,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

“But of course, dependent on the transfer-window ban being lifted, which it looks almost certain not to happen.”

Coutinho may not be having the best of seasons at Barcelona, but that could be a good thing for the Premier league giants as the Spaniards will surely be open to letting the Brazilian leave the club for a bargain fee.

They paid Liverpool £142 million to secure a deal, but could be willing to let him leave for just £65 million, which is a bargain for the type of player Coutinho is.

He is world class and could help fill the void that Hazard has left when he signed for Madrid.
