Philippe Coutinho’s dream move to Barcelona was heralded as part of a new era at the team, with both individual and team rewards expected. As three quarters of his first full season have been completed, Coutinho has been hit and miss; underwhelming in the domestic league but showing his quality in the Champions League. Is time already up for the Brazilian in Barcelona?
This summer may see the end of the curious case of Alexis Sanchez. Hailed as a coup for Man United, having been snatched from under the noses of Pep Guardiola and Man City, Sanchez was expected to repeat the form that saw him praised from all corners of the English game whilst operating within a lacklustre Arsenal squad. That form never materialised and with Ole Gunnar Solskjær likely to be named Man United’s next permanent manager, it seems as though Sanchez will be leaving.
