Philippe Coutinho continues to recover during his holidays and in Brazil, they have linked him with Olympique de Marseille, which is close to signing Gerson, a Flamengo midfielder, for whom they could pay 30 million for 75% of the player's rights, while that the other 25 would be kept by the Rio de Janeiro club for a future sale.

But according to what they say in Brazil, Pablo Longoria, the Spaniard who chairs OM, continues to think big and would seek to satisfy his coach Jorge Sampaoli, who took over the team last March and has asked for level reinforcements. The French club will play the next Europa League and want to take an important step to try to fight Ligue 1, which this year has been won by Lille. That is why they dream of incorporating Philippe Coutinho, who still has two more years on his contract.

An operation that seems complicated by the high salary of the Brazilian, far from what OM pays. Despite this, in Brazil, they insist that he is a player that Sampaoli “likes” a lot and that they could have tried a rapprochement with his environment.

For his part, Coutinho is close to seeing the light six months after his injury. After two operations, one in Barcelona and another in Belo Horizonte, the Barça midfielder faces the final stretch of his recovery, which he hopes will be the final one and is expected to reach 100 percent at the start of the new season.
