Former Liverpool defender Phil Thompson has said that Philippe Coutinho is good enough to play for Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Brazilian has been linked with switches to both the La Liga giants in recent months and the longer his consistency continues, the more likely offers are to come in.
Paris Saint Germain have also been linked with the former Inter Milan player, but it’s the two biggest clubs in the world that Thompson has pointed to.
“He could play and you could see him fitting in the Barcelona or Real Madrid team.” he told Sky Sports.
“I am being serious, he has that much ability, great technique.
“And he has become that big star and of course once you start getting something, you do hear that all the big Spanish clubs will be chasing him.
“So his agent has been working extra hard in the last couple of weeks.” he finished.
Coutinho’s compatriot Ronaldo recently urged him to join Real Madrid. Liverpool supporters will be hoping he ignores such advice.
