Manchester United Contact Coutinho's Agent

Manchester United Contact Coutinho's Agent

Coutinho has netted 16 times in 46 appearances for the Spanish giants since his £142m move to FC Barcelona from Liverpool FC in the 2018 January transfer window.

It's far too early to label Philippe Coutinho a flop at Barcelona or suggest he is surplus to requirements, but you can definitely say he has fallen short of expectations so far.

While that deal seems unlikely, Liverpool should just be hoping Coutinho stays at the Camp Nou for a while longer.

Manchester United have been galvanised by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - winning their last five games since the Norwegian's arrival - but if the Red Devils are to claw themselves into the Premier League top-four then they need a sensational signing to help finish the second half of the season in style. He was on target in the Copa del Rey in midweek but that was his first goal since October.

Coutinho is unsurprisingly disappointed with how things are going.

Coutinho instantly won silverware upon his move last season, joining up with a Barca side who were well in front in the race for the La Liga title.

Barcelona are also eyeing a move for Neymar, according to the report.

Manchester United are said to be keeping close tabs on the former Real Madrid playmaker as Solskjaer look to bolster his team at the middle of the park. It would be a huge deal if United can pull it off to take a former Liverpool star to Old Trafford.

Coutinho's task in claiming a regular starting place is complicated by the presence of another expensive signing, Dembele. The Italian outlet has reported that Barcelona will "listen" to offers for Coutinho, but will likely not settle for less than the amount they paid to secure his transfer. United already have good forwards like Martial, Lingard, Sanchez and Rashford.
