Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is expected to leave the Catalan giants this summer after a torrid time with the Spanish champions whom he joined from Premier League club Liverpool at the start of last year.
According to the specific report from the Daily Express, Philippe Coutinho won’t join Manchester United if he leaves Barcelona.
It was revealed that the Brazilian international prefers a move to Chelsea over Manchester United because of his allegiance to Liverpool.
Manchester United and Liverpool enjoy a fierce rivalry dating back to past decades.
The two clubs are undoubtedly the most successful teams in the history of English football.
Liverpool have won six European titles in addition to 18 league titles, while Manchester United have three European titles in addition to 20 league titles.
Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona in a controversial way during last year’s winter transfer window in a deal reported to be around £142m.
The Brazilian national team player still hold Liverpool dearly and he won’t be signing for Manchester United as a result.
He prefers a move to Chelsea who have to navigate through the transfer ban slapped on them to sign players this summer.
Chelsea have appealed the two-window transfer ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
