Rivaldo believes there is a good chance Philippe Coutinho could join FC Barcelona.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, the Brazil legend tipped the Liverpool midfielder to follow in his footsteps by joining the La Liga giants.

The 44-year-old said, “In my opinion, he’s a great player and a player who knows Neymar well. I think they are both friends – players who stand out.

“I think that this transfer might happen because Barcelona is always going to attract the best, isn’t it?

“He is one of the players who stands out and I believe that this transfer – if he goes to Barcelona – would be a good thing for Barcelona for sure.

“He is a player who would definitely help Barcelona. Of course, Barcelona is a big club, but with a player like him, it would definitely be a big help.”

Coutinho, 24, has scored six goals and provided seven assists in 17 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League side so far this season.
