United contact Brazilian star’s agent with view of transfer move
A report from Mundo Deportivo claims that Manchester United have offered Philippe Coutinho an escape from Barcelona after contacting the player’s agent over a possible transfer move.
The former Liverpool star has failed to live up to the expensive transfer fee Barcelona paid to sign him last winter and they may be forced to cash in on the midfielder soon.
It is unclear at the moment whether the Brazilian would accept the offer of a move to United, only 12 months after his high-profile transfer to the La Liga club.
Coutinho, who moved to Spain in a $182milliion deal last year, is believed to still have connections with his old colleagues at Anfield and that is perhaps the main stumbling block over a potential switch to Old Trafford.
United were linked with a move for the South American star during his days at Inter Milan and the club appears to have not lost any interest in signing him.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-contact-182m-stars-agent-with-view-of-transfer-move/
