Philippe Coutinho (9/10)

List item

Fiercely fighting for the Brazilian’s signature all the way through the summer, Barcelona finally captured Coutinho from Liverpool with the biggest transfer of the January window in 2018. With a fee rising to potentially £142 million if certain clauses in the contract are met, millions of fans around the world were almost overnight talking about Barcelona’s new midfielder. 

Technically gifted and brilliant on the ball with both feet, Coutinho is the architectural ‘number 10’ Brazilian that never fails to catch the praise and awe of pundits and fans alike. At 25, there is more than a few good years left in Barcelona’s new prodigy and if he continues to help things like shirt sales soar, the club might very well make their money back sooner than expected.
