It could be that that connection will give Chelsea the edge in that transfer deal, with other top clubs surely likely to be interested in Coutinho if he becomes available.
Sport have claimed the Brazil international is available for £100million this summer after struggling at the Nou Camp, but his world class form in his time at Liverpool could persuade CFC he’s worth paying the money for.
