Barcelona have made some financial decisions in the last few years that made Football enthusiasts question the transfer policy of the Spanish giant. In the last 5 years, Barcelona have spent more than £300million on Squad upgrade which all turned to be blunder transfer decision. It all started when Neymar Jr left the club for PSG in 2017 for a world record fee of €222million.
The weekend was a very special day at Camp Nou. Not just because of the win but because of the triumphal return of Barcelona's new number 10, Ansu Fati. Ansu Fati had not played at Camp Nou for ten months, yet he managed to bring everyone together much in the same way he did on his debut.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly linked with FC Barcelona's midfielder Philippe Coutinho Philippe Coutinho joined Fc Barcelona from Liverpool in 2018 and has since struggled to replicate the form which saw the Spanish giants cough out a whopping €160 million to procure the signature of the Brazilian from Liverpool.
FC Barcelona are looking forward to host the German outfit in Camp Nou, in the UEFA Champions league group stage match, by Tuesday, 14th September, 2021. The Bluagranas manager, Ronald Koeman is yet to have constant starting Eleven since the beginning of this season, with some of his players sidelined with injury for long.
Philippe Coutinho Coutinho has one final chance to save his failing career. Philippe Coutinho is, without a doubt, the best of the bunch. Since his €135 million move to Barcelona, the dribbling maestro has become a shadow of his former self. Constant injuries and the club's failure to properly integrate Coutinho into the first team have left him on the periphery of a mediocre Barcelona squad.
Philippe Coutinho returned to action against Bayern Munich in the Champions League after recovering from a long-lasting knee injury, which left him out for nine months. The Brazilian midfielders' contract with Barcelona will expire in 2023, which means next summer will be a key one for the former Liverpool star.
Barcelona is a Spanish professional football club based in Barcelona, Spain, that competes in La Liga, the top flight of Spanish football. The club is known to be one of the greatest clubs in Spain, due to its achievements and glories. Barcelona's first match since the end of August will see them take on Bayern Munich in the group stage of the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
A great paradigm shift took place in the Spanish La Liga this summer, and it wasn't the type of change that benefitted some of the club, especially Barcelona. The Blaugrana lost their highest Goalscorer and second highest Goalscorer during the same transfer window. Lionel Messi moved to PSG while Antoine Griezmann returned to Atletico Madrid on the deadline day of the transfer window.
Lionel Messi is arguably the best player in the world and past years he has proved to the world that he is an exceptional player both on the pitch and off the pitch. As a striker, scoring goals is one of the primary roles of Lionel Messi and also he needs to score more of them to continue his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The football transfer season is equally anticipated by fans, players, and clubs alike. It will be exciting to see how events unfold before the new season begins. Since his €222 million moves to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, Neymar has become the poster boy for inflation in the transfer market.
Barcelona suffered a second consecutive poor performance in LaLiga Santander with an uncertain 0-0 draw in Cádiz on Thursday night at the Nuevo Mirandilla Stadium. The Catalan visitors did little in the way of creating chances and then had to play the final 25 minutes with 10 men after a foolish sending-off for Frenkie de Jong.
Barcelona and Bayern Munich face off tonight in their first group stage match. The match is very important for both teams as a win would be a morale booster for their champions league campaign. This is the biggest stage where Philippe Coutinho can prove himself for Barcelona. Coutinho could be instrumental for Barcelona in their revenge against Bayern.
Barcelona welcomed Bayern Munich to the Camp Nou on Tuesday 14 September 2021, for their Champions League group F match. Bayern were superior in this encounter as the match ended 0-3 in Bayern Munich's favour. Most Barcelona players were far from being excellent in the game.
Football Club Barcelona and Bayern Munich begin their respective quests for Champions League glory with a blockbuster Group E clash at Camp Nou later tonight. For Ronald Koeman’s side, they'll be missing a couple of their important players. Some of the players include Ansu Fati, Martin Braithwaite, and Sergio Aguero.
Granada held Barcelona to a draw that was separated by just two goals scored in the match. The draw lifts Barca to 7th in La Liga with eight points from their first four games. Although Barcelona were far from convincing, this is still their best start to a season for a few years and they may well see this as one point gained rather than two lost.
Due to a clause in Philippe Coutinho's Barcelona contract, Liverpool is expected to earn an extra £17 million this season. Injuries have plagued the Brazil international's stay at Camp Nou, as he only made 14 appearances in all competitions during the 2020-21 season. Over the summer, Coutinho was heavily connected with a return to the Premier League, but no deal was struck, and he is still assumed to be in Ronald Koeman's plans.
Griezmann has gone back to his former club, Atletico Madrid on loan. The deal was sealed on the deadline day of the transfer. He will be with Atletico Madrid on loan for 2 years except Atletico Madrid terminate it. Griezmann played well at Barcelona whether you like it or not.
Philippe Coutinho football career has been nothing but a roller-coaster in terms of playing with class as he has, in his entire career, battle with consistency. One game he's performing wonders and the next he's below par, which has led to the question if the attacking midfielder is an average player.
