Sport report that the midfielder’s agents have arrived in Barcelona to put the finishing to touches to a long awaited deal for the Blaugrana. Barcelona are in dire need of a successor to the incredible Andres Iniesta and Coutinho has been earmarked for that role for quite some time now. It is understood that the former Inter man will move for a fee of around £140 million.
