Nike does it to confirm the transfer of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona ? Saturday night, one could read on a page of its official website dedicated to the catalan club : “Philippe Coutinho is ready to shine in Barcelona. Get your jersey 2017-2018 with the name of the magician.”
Nike quickly removed the text from its site, but the damage is done. The screenshots of the pellet, unless it is a coup de com’ cleverly orchestrated, were picked up by news sites sports around the world.
Barça has made the Brazilian to Liverpool’s priority for the past several months, but the English club has rejected many offers.
