There has been a remarkable twist in the Philippe Coutinho saga, while Manchester City are set to make a huge offer for Neymar, according to Friday’s European papers.


One Spanish journalist has issued a bold response to claims that Philippe Coutinho could move to Manchester United.

The Brazil international is only a year into his contract at the Camp Nou following his £142million move from Liverpool last January.

However, he has so far failed to justify the heavy price tag and Ernesto Valverde hasn’t started him in a La Liga match since December 2.

The ex-Liverpool playmaker was viewed as a replacement for Neymar on the left with the potential to fill Andres Iniesta’s shoes but he has struggled to make those roles his own.

Coutinho only played seven minutes in Barcelona‘s narrow 2-1 win over Getafe on Sunday and Manchester United were reportedly ‘in talks’ over a potential move which would cost in excess of £100million.

However, Marcelo Bechler has refuted claims that Coutinho could move to Old Trafford, by insisting that United have not made a proposal.

Reports have also suggested that Liverpool could even try and secure a return to Anfield for Coutinho.

It is claimed that the Reds are ‘looking at a way’ that they could bring the former Inter Milan star back to Merseyside, and that it is believed that he would ‘prefer a return to work with Klopp’ over a move to United..
