Coutinho to Manchester United: Barcelona to consider offers

Coutinho to Manchester United: Barcelona to consider offers

The 26-year-old was forced to miss two La Liga games in November because of injury and has only started once since his return, with an in form Ousmane Dembele preferred instead.

The Red Devils were first linked with a shock move for the ex-Liverpool ace earlier this week, just a year on from his switch to Camp Nou.

The ex-Liverpool playmaker was viewed as a replacement for Neymar on the left with the potential to fill Andres Iniesta's shoes but he has struggled to make those roles his own.

Philippe Coutinho is "tempted by Manchester United" as he becomes increasingly unhappy with his prolonged spells on the bench at Barcelona.

It has now been reported that the former Liverpool midfielder has caught the interest of Manchester United.

He scored one and set up another in Barcelona's resounding 5-0 victory over Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final - Barcelona's first trophy under Ernesto Valverde - before getting six goals in his final five league outings to help the club win La Liga by 14 points.

This was a facility that was supposed to be caring for its patients and appears to have egregiously failed at that responsibility. The department of health ordered Hacienda to implement "heightened safety measures", spokeswoman Melissa Blasius-Nuanez said.

At Levante, Coutinho was predictable, slow and overcomplicated attacking situations. But already the player's future is in doubt after the latest report suggests he could now be moved on in the summer.

Coutinho to Manchester United: Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho has failed to step up for the side after his £142m move from Liverpool. Italian media outlet Il Messaggero has said that United, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, are at the front of the queue to sign the 22-year-old who is said to have a £27m release clause in his current contract.

A major part of the problem is positional.

'When [Ousmane] Dembele wasn't playing, everyone was asking about him, ' said the Barca boss.

Coutinho became the club's most expensive signing in history when he swapped Merseyside for Barcelona but it has not all gone to plan for the club or the player.
