Barcelona are reportedly willing to sell Philippe Coutinho in the summer transfer window and are willing to take a financial hit on the Brazilian but do want at least €80 million.

Coutinho is currently on loan at Bayern Munich but looks certain to return to the Camp Nou as the German giants will not pay his €120 million purchase option.

This means Barca will have to reduce their asking price but will consider bids in the region of €80m, according to the Evening Standard.

Barcelona have been linked with big-money bids for Neymar and Lautaro Martinez this summer but will need to make at least one big sale to finance such a move.

Coutinho is one player who could command a decent transfer fee, although other reports have suggested Antoine Griezmann could be used to sign Neymar.
