Huge hint that Coutinho’s Barcelona transfer is close

Its been rumoured for months, but there has been a huge development over night that could suggest Philippe Coutinho’s protracted move to Barcelona is edging closer.

The world of football transfers is a difficult one, with many outlets looking for the latest hints, quotes, betting trends and more to justify that a deal is close.

However, when this happens, its usually a case of sit back and wait for the announcement.

Several eager eyed football fans noticed, while perusing the official Nike website in the Barcelona section, the following quote:

“Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up the Camp Nou. Get your 2017/18 FC Barcelona kit with the Magicians name on it. Act fast – free personalisation only available until 6 January.”

Below, was a link the said “Shop Coutinho’s look”.

Both of these items have now been removed, with someone probably reasling the error of their ways, with a deal not yet complete.

However, the fact that it was on the official Nike website, a company who sponsor both Barcelona and Philippe Coutinho, it comes as a huge hint that the deal is not far away.

Reports in Spain recently have suggested FC Barcelona officials will fly to England this week to thrash out a deal, with Coutinho potentially completing the move before Kings Day (6th January).
