Barcelona set Philippe Coutinho fee, Playboy model wants to buy a football club, and Spurs youngster undergoes surgery


After the Brazilian impressed in his first loan spell away from the club, the Catalan giants are keen to offload him temporarily for the second season running.

Barcelona have suggested that any club willing to sign Philippe Coutinho on a loan would have to pay a minimum of €10m in loan fee, as per Mundo Deportivo.

The 27-year-old Brazilian forward has spent the whole of the current season on loan at Bayern Munich after he failed to settle in during his maiden full-campaign at Barcelona.

Bayern were told by the Catalan giants that they could sign the former Liverpool star permanently but Hansi Flick’s side refused to exercise that option. This means that Coutinho will be returning to the Camp Nou upon the conclusion of the ongoing season.

Coutinho has been linked with a large number of Premier League clubs over the summer, but Le10 Sport [via The Mirror] has claimed that the ex-Inter Milan midfielder is on the top of transfer wish-list of Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta who wants a marquee signing to take the Gunners to the next level.

She has previously held rules including executive president, general manager and club president at a string of Romanian clubs so this won’t be her first foray into the footballing world. However, the stunning model has never held the top job before.

Daily Star claims that the then Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu was one of the most famous clients of Anamaria during her time as an agent. She is also one of the most influential figures in Romanian football and has already revealed her intentions of buying a football club.
