One of the concrete offers Coutinho has on the table to leave Barcelona is from Manchester United, Mundo Deportivo report.
But the Spanish outlet suggests that the Brazilian will flatly refuse a transfer to Old Trafford because of his ties to Liverpool, which many would argue were cut when he feigned injury and demanded an exit to Barcelona in the first place!
The report does say Coutinho would consider Chelsea, but that this won’t happen due to their transfer ban – and that the most likely destination for Liverpool’s once lauded no.10 is PSG – who already have a large Brazilian contingent and a bottomless pit of cash.
The playmaker endured a horrible season in Spain, booed by his own fans and cutting a solemn figure out on the left flank in big, important games.
We’d claim that part of the reason Coutinho wouldn’t consider United is because they’re not in the Champions League and are an awful side right now – but that’s another story!
Some Liverpool fans still have a soft spot for Phil, while others reckon him a Judas.
We’re indifferent. He wanted to leave, he got his exit – and Liverpool invested the £142m in him so smartly that we won the Champions League with Virgil van Dijk and Alisson in the side.
What’s the point in being angry?
