Report – Man Utd have moved in to sign £240,000-a-week star

Coutinho Liverpool

Liverpool supporters would absolutely go berserk if their former favorite, Philippe Coutinho, ends up moving to Old Trafford.

According to a story revealed by Caught Offside, right now, the Brazilian international is unsettled in Spain and numerous top clubs are interested in signing him, however, Manchester United have moved to steal march on the rivals by making early contact with the Catalan giants.

The ex Inter Milan man was a superstar at Anfield but he opted to join Barcelona in the middle of the last campaign and won the Spanish title.

Transfer: Report – Man Utd have more chance of signing £45million midfielder than Arsenal

In the summer, Andres Iniesta left Barca, and Coutinho was supposed to replace the legendary midfielder at the Nou Camp, but lately, he has been warming the bench under Valverde.

The 26-year-old star has so far made 16 league appearances in the current campaign, scored four goals and provided just a single assist.

The above mentioned stats are just not good enough for a player of his caliber. The Samba star was one of the most creative midfielders in the Premier League and the La Liga champions paid a mammoth fee of £146million to sign him from the Merseysiders (Sky Sports).

Coutinho made his last league start for Barcelona against Villareal on December 02, 2018. Since then, in the last four league games, he has only featured for a total of 62 minutes.

He is a world class talent and would largely improve Man United but he would also be aware of the fact that Liverpool fans will eternally hate him if he joins the Red Devils.

I do not think any United supporter would mind if the club opts to sell Sanchez, who is past his best, to replace him with Coutinho, who is in his peak years.

At the moment, Coutinho is earning around £240,000-a-week (Mirror Sport) and as per Caught Offside, he would cost around £100million.
