They don’t have enough money and they are desperate simply put. They want Coutinho & Dembele, neither who are going to be under £100 Million, Messi is in decline, they have no depth and they just got smashed by Madrid over two legs.
They are about to become one of the others and don’t have the financial power they once had. Plus Neymar left them and it wasn’t all about money so their culture is a little ruptured.
I reckon Coutinho might change his mind to be honest.
