Barcelona already tried last summer to place Coutinho after considering that the Brazilian had not gone as expected shortly after 160 million investment, which went almost directly to the Liverpool coffers.The midfielder ended up on loan at Bayern but, according to the Daily Mirror, was really close to Tottenham. The Spurs were interested in him, who maintains a good poster in England after his time at Liverpool, but it was Mauricio Pochettino who stopped his signing. This newspaper ensures that Daniel Levy, president of the Spurs, had everything closed for Coutinho to end there but Pochettino told him not to to, according to this newspaper, maintain the balance of the dressing room without introducing someone with a starring role who has not been progressing naturally within the team. Coutinho ended up on loan with a purchase option in Munich and has not been very successful. Bayern seems that it will not exercise the clause so that it remains permanently and from the Premier they return to be interested in him, among them, Tottenham. The Spurs, now with Mourinho on the bench, continue to see the arrival of the Brazilian player as positive and more after Eriksen’s departure at Inter Milan.The Brazilian’s agent assured in the English press that there are no problems with Tottenham even if the negotiation was stopped and Coutinho rings again to wear white in north London.
