FC Barcelona wants Oscar to replace Philippe Coutinho

As reported by journalist Marcelo Bechler on his twitter account and on TNT Sports Brasil, the FC Barcelona attempted the signing of Oscar to replace Philippe Coutinho, who was loaned to Aston Villa with an option to buy at the end of the season for 40 million euros.

The 30-year-old Brazilian is very fond of Joan Laporta and Xavi Hernández because of their individual quality, ability to come from the second row and experience in the elite, despite having spent several years playing in China. His time at Chelsea was very positive, which is why his price was so high at the time (60 million euros).

An option for the midfield, almost impossible

But, nevertheless, the economic situation of the club only allows it to carry out operations at zero cost in this winter transfer market and Oscar has a contract with SH Port until November 2024. An operation impossible to carry out at this time.

The Brazilian midfielder left Chelsea in January 2017 for China for € 60 million. A decision that surprised the world because he has the quality to play in the European elite, but since then he has stayed at Shanghai Port, where he has scored 50 goals and has distributed 93 assists in 170 games.

FC Barcelona currently cannot afford to pay a high transfer and, if they could, they would not do it in a midfielder when they have many talents from the quarry (Nico Gonzáles, Gavi…) emerging at this moment. An option that was handled, but that did not get anywhere. The name is still on the agenda, but it seems almost impossible that it can be specified, unless he negotiates his contract break with the Chinese Super League team. Will Oscar arrive at the Camp Nou?
