Barcelona are reportedly willing to sell Philippe Coutinho this summer but only if a club stumps up €120 million for the Brazilian.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca are open to selling the 27-year-old but want to recoup most of the cash they spent on bringing him to the club in January 2018.

Coutinho moved to the Camp Nou in one of the biggest transfer deals of all time. The club have already paid Liverpool €120m plus €15m in variables but are open to a sale.

The problem is that there are not too many clubs who are going to be able to meet Barca’s asking price.

The report reckons the Catalan giants believe Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain can all afford Coutinho, but it remains to be seen if any of that trio actually wants him.
