Philippe Coutinho’s future is very much up in the air.
Having failed at Barcelona after his big money move from Liverpool, the Brazilian was sent to Bayern Munich. He hasn’t done terribly in Germany but Friday’s edition of Sport reports staying at the Bundesliga club now isn’t an option for next season.
Therefore, the player’s agents have been working on finding a new destination, and have informed Barca they’re open to another loan move.
A return to English football is presented as the player’s desire, but it’s made clear he doesn’t fancy signing for Tottenham.
Recently it’s been claimed in Spain that Spurs made an attempt to sign Coutinho on loan last summer. It will have been around the time they were struggling to get a deal for Giovani Lo Celso and also failed to pay the required fee for Bruno Fernandes.
Sport claim there was an agreement in place last summer for the player to move to Tottenham, but that Daniel Levy reduced the finances of the offer at the last minute. This is said to have left Coutinho ‘outraged’ and therefore a move to Spurs would be his last option.
Given they managed to get Lo Celso in the end, Tottenham may not be too bothered.
