Barcelona could potentially make a significant profit if Aston Villa decides to sell Philippe Coutinho.
There is interest from clubs in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and if Villa sells Coutinho, Barcelona will reportedly receive 50% of the transfer fee.
The Brazilian playmaker has been linked with a move to Qatar, with Al-Duhail being the latest club mentioned.
Despite a long-term injury for Emi Buendia, Villa has already brought in attacking players Moussa Diaby and Nicolo Zaniolo, making Coutinho’s departure more likely.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has stated that Qatari clubs are pushing for Coutinho’s signing and that he has a chance to leave if a good proposal is made.
Reports also suggest that Barcelona has a 50% sell-on clause for Coutinho, meaning they will benefit financially if Villa reaches an agreement with one of the interested clubs in Qatar or Saudi Arabia.
