Transfer Rumors: Juventus To Offer Young Star In Return For Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho 32121

It looks like Philippe Coutinho's days at Barcelona are counted, and while the Brazilian was once one of the most feared playmakers in the world, he looks like half the player he was when he first signed a huge deal with the Blaugrana.

The Brazilian has struggled to find his rhythm with Ernesto Valverde's team, and the future arrival of Frenkie de Jong and Ousmane Dembele's surge have made it even more difficult for him to establish himself as a key part of the team's plans.

Either way, the team is going to have quite a difficult time selling him for profit after completing a huge deal from Liverpool, so it looks like Juventus may want to help them out with that regard by completing an interesting swap.

According to Spanish outlet AS, La Vecchia Signora have offered Paulo Dybala in return for Coutinho, as the Argentinean has also struggled at Turin.

The striker could help Barcelona reinforce a spot they've been looking to add depth for quite some time, while also finally finding a suitable replacement for the aging Luis Suarez.

Moreover, Dybala has also been heavily criticized at Italy because of his inconsistency and with Cristiano Ronaldo on board and Massimiliano Allegri reluctant to give him a long leash, it doesn't look like his future at Juventus is going to get any better.

Both of them could really benefit from a change of environment, as they're both incredibly talented and young players that could help a team turn things around in the blink of an eye.

Coutinho has also reportedly been in Manchester United's radar, as a comeback to Anfield seems unlikely considering he didn't leave the team in the best of terms.

As for Dybala, he's been a longtime target for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, so let's see how this story unveils.
