Coutinho ‘looks for Barcelona home’

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is reportedly looking for a home in Barcelona as he continues to be linked with the Catalans.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho is confident he will become a Barca player in January and has consequently “given orders to his most trusted people” to find him a house nearby.

Catalonia is nothing new to the attacking midfielder, given he spent time on loan at Espanyol earlier in his career.

He would also be looking to reside near former Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez and Brazil colleague Paulinho in order to make his re-adaptation easier.

MD concludes the 25-year-old “has faith in Barca’s board and the Reds’ word that they will let him leave”, with a deal worth as much as €150m in the works.
