Barcelona Offers Lazio An Opportunity To Accommodate Coutinho

The surprising news comes from Barcelona who has offered one of their star players, Philippe Coutinho on loan to Lazio but an agreement is likely to be difficult to reach.  Given the financial condition of the Italian capital club, it is not possible even to pay half his salary.

According to reports reported by Corriere Dello Sport and Gazetta Dello Sport, Barcelona is reportedly ready to pay 50 percent of Philippe Coutinho's salary this season if he can be loaned to another club this season.  The idea was offered by his agent, Kie Joorabchian, who used to work with Lazio and knows that Coutinho is no longer a stranger to Serie A, having played for Inter.

The Brazilian player is reportedly good friends with Biancoceleste midfielder Lucas Leiva.  However, the Aquile are currently having a hard time registering new players who have joined their squad and trained with Maurizio Sarri this summer.  These conditions make it impossible for them to pay the midfielder's salary of 4.5 million euros.

In addition, the Italian capital club only competed in the Europa League this season where Coutinho would have preferred to be able to play in the Champions League.  The Aquile's activities in this summer's transfer market are still stagnant due to the failure to sell Joaquin Correa because president Claudio Lotito persists with his asking price in the range of 35 to 40 million Euros and his interested club, Inter is not willing to fulfill it.
