⚔️ Big Debate: Coutinho-Neymar swap deal - 'hell yeah' or 'no way'?
The recent piece of transfer speculation has provided a lot of food for thought for Barca fanbase: some cules are looking forward to financing Neymar return through the sale of Coutinho and other think it's a bad idea.
On Thursday a shocking rumour about Coutinho-Neymar swap deal came into circulation. Highly reputable British source Evening Standard claimed that Barca are allegedly going to sell Coutinho in summer which would fund their potential pursuit of their prodigal son, Neymar. Naturally, this sensational deal wouldn't come cheaply given the notoriously strained relationship between PSG and Barca. Nevertheless, Neymar's vocal desire to leave could help the Catalans.
Barcelona Live users are divided on the matter with some being highly in favour of this move - or, rather, two moves - and other vehemently opposing it. Let's look at the arguments from both sides.
Whatever Neymar's fault was in his Barcelona departure it should be forgiven argue some, as he is a much better player than his Brazilian teammate.
With Coutinho failing to deliver this season, his commitment should be questioned argue others.
However crazy this deal might look it's a good one for Barca, so why not try it, argue our users.
However, many of Barcelona Live user reckon that the whole idea of the swap is insane, even with Neymar being arguably the third-best player in the world.
There is also the issue of Coutinho. Wouldn't it be wrong to give up on the Brazilian just a year after signing him? Our users think so.
There is always the middle ground, however. Why can't we have both? Surely, Barca can afford this.
What's your opinion on swapping Coutinho for Neymar?
