The Brazilian midfielder has been playing in Bayern Munich on loan from Barcelona this season. But in the summer he might move back or to another club after Bayern doesn’t want to keep him permanently. In the Philippe Coutinho next club odds we check the biggest favorites to sign him.
The career of Coutinho has started well, with joining Liverpool in 2013 and being a key member there in the first few years. He was selected in the Team of the Year in 2015 and was part of the team finishing second in the 2013-14 season, providing great assists to strikers, Luiz Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. In 2017 he scored his 30th goal in the Premier League and became the all-time leading Brazilian goalscorer in the PL. He joined FC Barcelona in the beginning of 2018, but things didn’t go so well there.
In the Philippe Coutinho next club odds Chelsea are the favorite
Coutinho only spent one season in Barcelona when he joined Bayern Munich on a season-long loan. He played better at the German club and scored 9 goals out of his total 32 appearances. But it looks like his performance didn’t convince the executives at Bayern and they won’t pay the £109 million transfer fee for him. But there is another club, which has the money and the interest to sign him, Chelsea. According to online sportsbooks in the UK, Chelsea is the most likely destination for Coutinho, they have the odds of 1.80 at Unibet Sportsbook to sign him.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is looking to strengthen his squad this summer and sign some experienced player who can fit into his team. Coutinho can be a perfect option as he can play in many different positions, from left side or in the central No 10 role. He also knows the Premier League well and according to the rumors he would love to return back to England.
Return to Barca or move to another club?
There is always the option that Coutinho can simply move back to the Catalans and try to prove that he was worth the £142 million that the club paid for him. Online gambling sites in the UK are giving his return the odds of 3.00. There is a new manager in Barcelona after the sacking of Ernesto Valverde, who might want to keep Coutinho. There could also be several players leaving the club in the summer, like Ivan Rakitic and Ousmane Dembele, and in this case the ‘Little Magician’ can fill their void.
But in the Phillipe Coutinho next club odds other options are also mentioned like another London club, Tottenham Hotspur. They are also in need of a player like Coutinho, especially after the leave of Christian Eriksen this January. The issue can be the fee for the Brazilian, which might be too much for Spurs. While for the player joining the team might be the perfect occasion to regain his confidence and get to the level he was before at Liverpool. The odds of Tottenham to be Coutinho’s next club is 8.00 on Unibet.
