Philippe Coutinho has already been informed about “the basic information” of Barcelona by one current player.
Barcelona had three players rejected for Coutinho in the summer and are expected to renew their interest in January or at the end of the season.
And now teammate Paulinho has joined the chorus of those championing his expected arrival.
“I make jokes that people are already looking for a house for him,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “I try to give him the basic information, the most important for him and his family, because maybe the time he lived here was not enough to know the city.
“But he knows that Barcelona is a very good city, that offers everything for him and his family.
“I already explained to Coutinho how Barça is. I talked to him about training, the facilities, the players. The way the players received me was incredible.
“Coutinho knows that there are great players, like Suarez, with whom he met at Liverpool and he gets along very well, he is a person who always tries to help.
“Now we have to wait until the transfer can be made in January to come here.”
