Man United eyeing swoop for former Liverpool No.10

Manchester United will have the chance to sign Philippe Coutinho if they offer Barcelona a substantial amount with the Catalan club willing to entertain bids as they pursue Neymar.

former Liverpool midfielder Coutinho has been linked with a sensational switch to Old Trafford.

The forward has yet to hit the heights promised from his £142 million move to Camp Nou from the Reds 12 months ago.

The Brazilian has made just nine starts in La Liga this term, netting four goals and having slipped down the pecking order under Ernesto Valverde.

According to Calciomercato, the Catalan giants are willing to listen to offers, but the Red Devils will only be victorious in their attempts to sign him if they submit a respectable bid.

No figure is mentioned, but Barcelona would likely want close to the £142 million they paid Liverpool back in January 2018.

Coutinho is understood to be an option that could be considered for sale as they pursue their mega-money transfer in Neymar, who completed a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain for nearly £200 million, but he is already being linked with a return to the former club.

Reports claim Neymar is open to a return to Barcelona amid suggestions he is unhappy in Paris and the Selecao superstar is under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2022.
