Barcelona plan 2 midfield sales if Coutinho arrives

Barcelona will seek to sell two midfielders this month if they can land Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho.

For the Coutinho deal, Wednesday could be decisive.

Barca are expected to make a new offer to Liverpool for the Brazil international in the coming hours, with it reaching Catalan sources that the Premier League club are now demanding €160m to sell.

If they can strike terms, Don Balon says two midfielders will be allowed to move on: Andre Gomes and Rafinha.

Gomes has already had his agent, Jorge Mendes, sound out interested clubs about a January deal. Rafinha, meanwhile, has just recovered from knee surgery but is also prepared to leave.

A reunion with Juan Carlos Unzue at Celta Vigo has been mooted for the Brazilian.
