The Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona rumors are slowly but surely getting traction. Now there is one more reason to get them really started.

Barça superstar and Coutinho's friend Neymar Jr. took part in a promotional event on Monday and gave a brief interview to the press, and among the usual "I'm working hard to get better" topics, there was one special quote that will give people reason to talk:

"Coutinho is a great player. I would love to play with him at Barça. He certainly is already at a level to play here."

Even though the 23-year-old doesn't seem to fit the system, he definitely has the talent to achieve great things. And if Neymar is endorsing his move to Catalonia, then we at least have to consider starting taking this a little seriously.
