“Would be miles better than Robinho” – These Magpies fans drool over links with £142m superstar

These Newcastle United fans were delighted to discover that we have been linked with a possible move for Barcelona winger Philippe Coutinho.

You should all be familiar with the Brazilian by now after he had a wonderful stint down at Liverpool before his £142m move to the Catalan giants, where he scored 51 goals and provided 45 assists in 201 appearances for the Reds.

With just 21 goals and 11 assists in 76 outings for his new club last season, things did not turn out the way he would have wanted and was sent on loan to the reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and could be looking for a new club next season.

Would you bring Philippe Coutinho to Newcastle?

No

According to Mundo Deportivo, Newcastle have thrown their hat in the ring to compete for his services but are expected to have stiff competition from the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton.

Unsurprisingly, supporters were overjoyed with excitement over the report and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he would be “miles better than Robinho”, referring to Manchester City’s first big signing following their takeover in 2008.
