The future of former Bayern Munich midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been in limbo for a few months now, but the Brazilian maestro could finally be settling in on the next destination for his career.
According to journalist Rudy Galetti, Coutinho would have to accept a pay cut of up to 50% if he wants to move to one of two clubs primarily interested in the 29-year-old. As of now, Inter Milan and Olympique Marseille are most likely to acquire Coutinho:
⚠️‼️ #Milan is in contact with #Coutinho's entourage: the also has citizenship so he wouldn't occupy a non-EU slot. So, #Coutinho wouldn't rule out #KaioJorge. also to the other clubs interested in the attacking midfielder (e.g. #OM). ⚽️ #Calciomercato #Transfers https://t.co/fQDIDiMU3b— Rudy Galetti (@RudyGaletti) July 15, 2021
A move away from FC Barcelona is probably the thing for Coutinho at this stage of his career. Coming off of an injury, Coutinho will be looking to re-establish himself and both Inter Milan and Olympique Marseille would afford him that opportunity.
As of now, though, Inter Milan seems to be leading the race and could be a very interesting landing spot for Coutinho. The former Bayern Munich treble-winner needs an opportunity to get consistent playing time and that should be a possibility with Inter.
