Man Utd on Alert: Spanish club ready to sell South American midfielder this summer

By | April 9, 2020

La Liga giants Barcelona would reportedly be prepared to make their midfielder Philippe Coutinho available for £80m this summer.

The Brazil international, who continues to be rumoured with a switch to Chelsea and Manchester United, has struggled to make his mark at Nou Camp since arriving in a big-money transfer from Liverpool back in 2018.

Coutinho has impressed on loan at Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich this campaign, founding back of the net nine times and providing eight assists in 32 games, however, the German champions are allegedly unlikely to finalise a permanent deal.

According to Sport, Spanish giants are keen to shift the midfielder this summer and are prepared to take a £65m hit on the Brazilian playmaker by placing him on the market as little as £80m.

Frank Lampard’s side are believed to be keen on a loan deal for the South American playmaker, however, the Spanish giants want him to depart from the club permanently during this summer’s transfer window.

Manchester United have also previously been credited with an interest in Brazil international playmaker who has been one of the best players in the Premier League during his time at Liverpool and both the Red Devils and the Blues could use a quality player like him.
