Premier League giants Manchester United are one of several clubs interested in a transfer for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho though the player is reluctant to join the Red Devils mainly due to his affiliation with Liverpool.
Coutinho left Liverpool in a controversial manner enroute his multi-million pounds transfer to Spanish champions Barcelona during the 2018 winter transfer window, but he has not been able to live up to his hefty price tag.
His performances for the Blaugrana have not been up to scratch.
Philippe Coutinho joined Barcelona in a deal reported to be around £142m thus making him the third most expensive player in the history of world football.
Only the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were signed for more money.
Ironically, PSG are one of the clubs keen to sign him this summer as he takes his decision on his next move.
Coutinho enjoys a good working relationship with Brazilian teammate Neymar and he could link up with him at PSG if the French giants are willing to pay a lot of money for him.
The future of Neymar at PSG is unclear at the moment with the player holding out for a return to Barcelona.
Brazilian magician Coutinho has also been linked with a move to both Chelsea and Manchester United. Let’s examine how Manchester United will line up if they manage to pull off a deal for Coutinho.
Manchester United Starting XI (4-3-3): David De Gea; Diogo Dalot, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay; Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford.
