Barcelona Expects Chelsea Bid For Coutinho If Their Transfer Ban Is Delayed by ogbiwa: 7:36am On May 14
Barcelona's hierarchy are bracing themselves for interest from Chelsea in Philippe Coutinho as the Blues go in search of a replacement for Eden Hazard.

The Brazil international is keen to remain at Camp Nou, but with fans turning on him there is a feeling inside the club that he is dispensable

Goal understands that even though Coutinho wants to remain at Camp Nou despite a disappointing first full campaign, some members of the Blaugrana's board of directors are keen to sell this summer.

The Brazil international has failed to impress since arriving from Liverpool in a £105 million ($135m) deal in January 2018, despite playing his part in two Liga title wins.

And while he has struggled to fully win over supporters in Catalunya, their relationship has suffered in recent weeks after his celebration after scoring against Manchester United in the
Champions League .

Fans were unhappy at him placing his fingers in his ears so as to drown out his critics following his long-range strike against the Red Devils, and jeers from the stands have become more prevalent as a result.

A disappointing performance against his former club at Anfield as Barca crashed out of Europe saw further questions asked of the 26-year-old, and the number of dissenting voices inside the club are now growing.

Chelsea, meanwhile, look set to lose Hazard this summer, with the forward having dropped his biggest hint yet that he wants to join Real Madrid
.

Though the two clubs are still a long way apart on a final fee, talks are ongoing, and the Blues are expected to earn at least €100m (£90m/$118m) from the sale of the Belgium international.

Given Hazard's importance to Maurizio Sarri's side - he scored 16 goals and laid on 15 assists in the Premier League alone in 2018-19 - a replacement is highly likely to be sought should their FIFA-inflicted transfer ban be delayed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

It is understood that a decision on the two-window long suspension for registering senior players will be made before the closure of the upcoming transfer window, meaning a potential swoop for Coutinho would be viable.

Sarri is yet to speak to Chelsea's hierarchy regarding transfer targets for the summer, given the Blues still have the Europa League final to play on May 29 as well as the potential for them not being able to make any new additions to their squad until 2020.

But it is likely that both Sarri and the club will have their own targets, and Barca are of the belief that Coutinho will be on at least one of those lists given his experience of the Premier League and ability to play a similar role to that of Hazard.

Should an offer be forthcoming for the playmaker, there will certainly be those inside the Barcelona boardroom who would consider allowing the third-most expensive footballer of all time to leave the club.

Coutinho's potential departure could be one of a number of big name sales at Barcelona this summer, with Ivan Rakitic close to agreeing a €50m (£43m/$56m) move to Inter while
Samuel Umtiti is being pushed towards the exits
after an injury-hit campaign.

Oddly enough I think Coutinho will do well at Chelsea, even better. And he shares several similarities with Hazard in their style of play .

Seriously I really hope we sign the guy but for the transfer ban. Though there are many good players on loan we can recall. The ban is a blessing in disguise.

No we don't need him. We've got Mason Mount coming through from Derby County, have you watched him play? Reuben Loftus cheek, Ross Barkley and hudson-odoi are doing well too, they would do better next season. Christian Pulisic is another exciting player to watch out for even though we paid too much for him. Time for Chelsea to stop throwing money under the bus.

Coutinho can't play in Hazard position! He's best position is attacking midfield and that will spell doom for Loftus Cheek given that Kante and Jorginho are already first team players....
I pray the ban is never delayed and given so we can make use of the young talents we have at our disposal! We have 41 players on loan! Shityy Higuain and Kovacic can go back to their parents clubs....
Its time for the Chelsea youths to shine!!!

Chelsea don't need coutinho I should agree with that

But with those below average player you mentioned you will not win trophies

Chelsea will never give those players chance

Yes pulisic is very good ,so you can see your club doesn't beleive in those kids ,pulisic is just 19 years old ,same age mates with most of your youth player
