Former Brazilian star Ronaldinho has backed Barcelona’s bid to sign Liverpool’s playmaker Philipe Coutinho as a replacement for PSG bound Neyamar.
Liverpool have maintained their stance of not wanting to sell their star midfielder despite Barcelona’s pursuit with boss Jurgen Klopp also determined to keep the creative midfielder but Ronaldinho thinks the Reds playmaker is the perfect man to replace Neymar.
“There are only very few players in the world who can replace Neymar, and I have said that I think Coutinho could play for them,” he said.
“He is at a level where he could come and fill the gap left by Neymar – but Liverpool will know his worth and after the fees of this summer it will cost Barcelona.”
