Ex-PSG striker Da Fonseca: Barcelona can't risk failing to sign Coutinho

Former PSG and Monaco striker Omar Da Fonseca says Barcelona cannot afford to miss out on signing Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

De Fonseca believes Barca will face a huge backlash should they fail to sign confirmed targets Coutinho and Borussia Dortmund attacker Ousmane Dembele.

He told BeinSport: "At Barça, the reinforcements will surely come but for the moment, it's not crazy.

"If they do not sign Coutinho and/or Dembele, it's going to be dramatic. It is an end of cycle, they must renew.

"Today, (Lionel) Messi, who is the cornerstone of the Catalan project, is so marked by opposing teams that it becomes difficult for them."
