Barcelona spending spree set to continue despite Coutinho deal
Barcelona’s winter spending spree looks set to continue, according to our traders, with three more names on their wishlist.
We make them favourites to sign David Luiz, Mesut Ozil, and Antoine Griezmann before February 1, despite landing Philippe Coutinho for £142m.
Luiz is the most likely man to move to the Nou Camp at 7/2, while 6/1 says Ozil completes a switch.
A move for Griezmann isn’t being ruled out either at 8/1, with Atletico Madrid handing the French star their blessing to leave.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Barca have spent almost £300m so far this season but our traders reckon their spending spree could continue as they’re favourites to land three more blockbuster names before the window closes.”
There could be a lot of ball-juggling at Camp Nou before January is out.
