Philippe Coutinho

Six-time European champions Liverpool are reportedly open to the idea of welcoming Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho back to the club despite his controversial exit last year.

According to French publication Le10 Sport, the heart of senior Liverpool officials has been softened towards Philippe Coutinho after his admission about rivals Manchester United.

Coutinho has struggled a great deal at the Nou Camp since his £142m move from Liverpool to Barcelona during the winter transfer window last year.

The Brazilian international has seen his dream move to Barcelona go south in just 18 months and he’s ready to save his career by leaving the club this summer.

Manchester United are one of the clubs linked with the former Inter Milan star but he has ruled out a move to the Red Devils out of respect for Liverpool and that gesture seems to have won some hearts at Anfield.

Philippe Coutinho practically forced his move to Barcelona in January 2018 after threatening to go on strike if Liverpool didn’t grant him the transfer which made him the third most expensive player in the history of world football behind the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Coutinho is a prodigal son at Liverpool but the Reds are ready to welcome him back to their fold with open arms.
