    Would follow this transfer saga but way too busy right now so I raced past the last few pages and got a huge shock.

    Is coutinho really paying out of his own pocket? 15 m? Really?

    He will be our 2nd best player by miles, behind Messi.

    Why doubting Coutinho?

    No, but they're claiming he's waiving off a 15m signing bonus that will be paid over the duration of his contract.

    Not really but he is giving up on bonuses.

    Money which he will make back probably from being at a huge club like Barca. Already word of Nike upping his contract etc.

    +long shots

    After thinking about it Iniesta has scored some pretty awesome outside of the box goals too

    I haven't seen enough of him to judge properly, so how is he at shielding and protecting the ball under heavy pressure? Is he even somewhat comparable to Iniesta in that department? I know he'll bring the end product that Iniesta rarely does, but I feel ball retention is super important, if we're to cut down on turnovers against us.

    Edit.

    Sounds more like he's afraid Barca will announce it before he gets back to Barcelona as he waited all summer for the move to happen.

    Dribbling. Yes. Passing and vision definitely no. He couldnt quite co-exist with Messi unless he plays out wide as a LW. The two will clash in the central park.

    Neymar was a strange fit.
    Cou will play as if he was born and developed here.

    I think he is quite good in that department.

    His passing and vision are top class. Probably provides more cutting edge than Iniesta would but more risk taking at same time.

    Can easily co exist with Messi.

    He wasnt but he was previous to last season twice in a row and even last season which he missed a bit due to injury had more MOTM performances than anyone else in the league.

    I think Coutinho has 5 or 6 MOTM awards in the 14 league games he's played this season.
