Liverpool sold Coutinho to Barcelona in the January transfer window of 2018. Since then, the Brazilian international has so far won two La Liga titles with the Catalan giants but individually, he has failed to impress and now, he is linked with a move away from the Nou Camp.
Today, Mundo Deportivo have covered two posts. In the first one, they reported that the Samba star could be sold in the summer transfer window and he is valued at 100 million euros (£88million).
In the second article, the renowned Spanish source claimed that Manchester United have made a huge proposal to sign the former Inter Milan playmaker.
However, the Red Devils face competition from Chelsea, who have also made a big offer to lure the South American. Furthermore, it is mentioned that even PSG could opt to move for him (Mundo Deportivo).
In his last half season with Liverpool, he managed to score 5 goals in as many Champions League appearances under the management of Jurgen Klopp. Moreover, he directly contributed in 13 goals in 14 Premier League games.
On the other hand, in his first full season with Barcelona, he has only managed to score 5 goals in 34 league appearances and found the net 3 times in 12 CL outings.
At Anfield, Coutinho was absolutely loved by the Kop but at the Nou Camp, the supporters seem to hate him. He was booed by the Barca fans in both the CL games against Liverpool and it will not come as any surprise to see him leave this summer.
The Brazilian international has got world class talent, he has proved his worth in the Premier League and has what it takes to improve our current attacking department at Old Trafford.
The issue is that we cannot offer him Champions League football as far as the next season is concerned. More importantly, he would tarnish his reputation at Anfield forever if he opts to join us. So, the move might not happen.
