Man Utd have made contact to sign £77million playmaker – Face competition




Ivan-Rakitic-Philippe-Coutinho

Liverpool fans would not like it if their former star Philippe Coutinho ends up moving to Manchester United.

According to an exclusive story covered by Mirror Sport, Man Utd have made contact to sign Coutinho but they are not alone because even the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs are looking to bring him back to the Premier League.

Transfer: Man Utd want priority signing of attacker with £175million clause – Contact made

The British source have stated that the Samba star regrets leaving Liverpool in 2018 and is now hoping to return to England. It is mentioned that Jurgen Klopp does not want to bring the former Inter Milan playmaker back to Anfield.

Coutinho was a star at Merseyside and he was one of the best players in the 2017-18 campaign but decided to leave the Reds in the middle of the season to join Barcelona.

The South American star had a torrid first full season with the Catalan giants last term and last summer, he was loaned out to Bayern Munich.

The 27-year-old has only netted two goals in the last nine league games for the German champions, who are reluctant to make his move permanent (Mirror Sport). The renowned outlet have reported that even the PL clubs would not want to pay £100million to hire his services and are looking to lure him on loan.

It must be remembered, last month, The Express reported that the Spanish champions are prepared to sell their £142million signing for just £77million.

The 61-capped international was supposed to replace Iniesta in the center of the park at the Nou Camp but Valverde did not use him properly and wasted him on the left wing. He has brilliant dribbling skills but does not have searing pace to be deployed on the flank.

Philippe Coutinho is a proven PL player, who has the quality and the experience to improve the attack of Man Utd but in all fairness, we really do not have a great chance of signing him due to his Anfield connection.

The Brazilian will have to tear his reputation apart and face the wrath of the Liverpool supporters if he does decide to move to Old Trafford. Do you think, we have a real chance of signing him?
