Newcastle United: Fans slam asking price for Philippe Coutinho as potential new owners target him post-takeover

Newcastle United: Fans slam asking price for Philippe Coutinho as potential new owners target him post-takeover - Newcastle United

Many Newcastle United fans have slammed the asking price for former Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho as Mundo Deportivo (via NUFC 360) claim that FC Barcelona are said to want 100 million euros for him.

As per the tweet, the proposed owners at St. James’ Park would like to sign Coutinho if the prospective takeover goes through. The Saudi-led consortium, backed by the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) and spearheaded by businesswoman Amanda Staveley, will perhaps be looking for a statement addition if their bid goes through, and the ex-Anfield ace could fit the bill.
