Barcelona ready to part with Coutinho for 130 million euros

Coutinho, aged 26, has not reached expectations that Barcelona fans had anticipated ahead of his arrival at the Camp Nou.

The Brazilian worldwide, who moved to the La Liga champions from Liverpool in January 2018, has struggled for form during his first full season at the Nou Camp.

According to AS, Coutinho's representatives, Kia Joorabchian and Giuliano Bertolucci, have been in contact with several Premier League sides as they prepare for the 26-year-old's likely departure from Barcelona, but United are yet to respond to their efforts, and the Red Devils' interest in Coutinho is now up in the air.

Given that Barca are likely to want to recoup most of the £142m fee they forked out to Liverpool, the report claims Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are both interested.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Coutinho but, according to Sport, he does not want to join the Red Devils, given their fierce rivalry with Liverpool. The chance to play alongside Neymar, an worldwide teammate and one of his close friends, may also appeal to him.

Chelsea are reportedly looking at Coutinho as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard should the start date of their transfer ban be extended by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

When Philippe Coutinho moved into his house was robbed within a month and since then he has endured a really tough time at the club.

The Brazilian will not be short of suitors if he does quit Barcelona and has already been linked with a return to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Manchester United mooted as destinations.
