Manchester United eye Philippe Coutinho bid

Premier League side Manchester United are considering a  surprise move for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho this summer, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

Coutinho, who moved to the Nou Camp from Liverpool in January 2018 for a €120m fee, has not established himself as a consistent starter under Ernesto Valverde – with 43 La Liga appearances in 13 months.

The report states that Coutinho has spoken with United players regarding a potential move, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are willing to play €115m to bring the Brazilian international back to the Premier League. 

Another option for the 26 year-old midfielder is to move to Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain, who could make a move for him, if they can offload some of their under performing stars in the summer.
