Chelsea board criticised for considering £75million worth Coutinho amid COVID-19 pandemic

Barcelona legend, Rivaldo, has predicted that attacking midfielder, Philippe Coutinho can get back to his best if he eventually joins Chelsea this summer transfer window.

DAILY POST had reported that Chelsea is already in talks with Coutinho’s agent as they look to bolster Frank Lampard’s squad this summer after they failed to sign any new player last January.

The West London club wants to make amends this summer by handing Lampard around £150 million to spend on Coutinho and other new signings.

Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona in January 2018.

But Rivaldo believes that Coutinho’s return to the Premier League will be an opportunity for the 27-year-old to improve on his career.

“I believe that this chance Philippe Coutinho now has of continuing his career at Chelsea could be a good option,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“He will move to a big club and to England and the Premier League he knows well where he had his best years so far.

“So if that transfer really happens, I am sure he will have a good chance of seeing things improve for him in the future.

“After all, Coutinho has already shined in the Premier League before.”

Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has slammed Chelsea board over their pursuit for £75 million worth Coutinho, amid the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe.
