Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is reportedly tempted by the transfer interest from Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Brazilian international star will consider a move to the Red Devils if his lack of playing time at the Nou Camp continues.

This is according to the publication from Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Philippe Coutinho has not been able to reprise his Liverpool form at Barcelona since he moved to Catalonia in January 2018.

He became the third most expensive player in the history of world football when Barcelona paid a whopping £142m to secure his transfer from Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Only the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are more expensive than the Brazilian.

Recent reports had claimed that the Red Devils are preparing a bid of around £100m for Brazilian forward Philippe Coutinho.

The 26-year-old was one of the standout performers for the Brazilian national team that reached the quarterfinal stage of last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

He has not been able to replicate that form for Barcelona this season.

Coutinho had not started the last four league games for Barcelona until he was given a rare start during the 3-0 win over Eibar at home.
