Two days ago, we carried a report from Mundo Deportivo, who explained Manchester United have ‘asked most about’ Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazil international has struggled at Barcelona this season as Ernesto Valverde has preferred Ousmane Dembele ahead of him. When the World Cup winner was injured, the 27-year-old failed to showcase why he deserves a place in the starting XI.
On the front page of Mundo Deportivo, it’s stated the La Liga winners view him as ‘transferable’ as they have to raise funds to bring in new players.
From the ‘interested’ clubs, the Red Devils get a mention.
The South American is said to have already informed those close to him he’d be ready to leave Barcelona this summer.
Having paid €120m plus variables to the Reds in January 2018, the Blaugrana will need a fee of around €100m from potential suitors to cut their ties with the player.
Coutinho impressed during his time at Anfield, which is why the Catalan newspaper explains he has a good market in England.
It’s claimed Manchester United have been interested in his situation and the player’s agent has an offer with ‘weight’ from the 20-time English champions.
Mundo claims the chances of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side signing Coutinho are reduced because of their failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
There has hardly been any concrete reports from the English press regarding United’s interest in Coutinho, even though the Catalan press continues to push the player to Old Trafford.
