Coutinho welcome back at Liverpool for the right price – Carragher
Philippe Coutinho would be welcome back at Liverpool if Barcelona made him available for “decent money”, says Reds legend Jamie Carragher.
The Brazil international traded Anfield for Camp Nou during the winter transfer window of 2018.
He had spent five productive years in England and felt the time was right to move on at the end of a protracted saga.
Things have not gone entirely to plan for Coutinho in Catalunya, though, and further questions are being asked of his future.
A return to Liverpool has been mooted and Carragher believes Jurgen Klopp would be wise to fill a problematic position with a familiar face if a 26-year-old could be acquired for the right price.
“I wouldn’t say I would be actively going to get him, but if there was a possibility of bringing Coutinho back for decent money, and Barca wanted to cut their losses a little bit because it hasn’t worked out, then I’d do that,” the former Reds defender told the Liverpool Echo.
