FC Barcelona took advantage of the presentation of goalkeeper Neto to speak about the future of Philippe Coutinho with the Brazilian's agents.
Barça have given free rein to his representatives with the caveat that they bring in 110 million euros and Paris Saint-Germain are very interested in him -- the deal could be carried out in conjunction with the Catalan's move for Neymar.
Kia Joorabchian, who is Coutinho's agent, arrived in Barcelona on Monday night with another one of his clients -- goalkeeper Neto -- and has been able to catch up with the club's directors.
In the meeting with Coutinho's agents, Barça's advisor in Brazil, Andre Cury, was also present. He took part in the Neto deal, too. In fact, Cury and the agents were key to the goalkeeper accepting the move to Camp Nou.
The idea is that he comes to compete for the No.1 spot with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, even though he knows it will be tough. Neto has a good reputation, especially in Italy, and if he doesn't win a place at Barça, it won't be hard to find a new club.
As for Coutinho, his agents have assured Barcelona that he remains happy at the club and his idea is to stay, but they're not closing the door on anyone. Coutinho's drawing interest from many clubs and it seems he would have no problem reaching an agreement with PSG, although everything depends on Neymar.
