Philippe Coutinho es una prioridad para el FC Barcelona

Coutinho cannot be the saviour on his own

OPINION

I read that Barça are close to signing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool. And that they will pay a huge sum of money for the pleasure of doing so. 

It's good that Barcelona's supporters understand that it's not about another Neymar, but about a good player who has demonstated his value at Liverpool. 

We will only know if it's a lot of money or not based on how well the Brazil international does during his time at Camp Nou. 

A signing should not be a statement but be made in coordination with other signings and the work of the academy, too. 

I think it's important to turn the page on the Neymar issue, though, and for the club to begin to reveal what the plans are for the team.
