Man United ready to pay €100m to sign Liverpool rebel

Philippe Coutinho’s spell at Barcelona has been very bumpy and the player could be set for a return back to the Premier League.

Not that Liverpool would have loved to welcome him back with warm open arms after he forcefully exited the club, it is Manchester United, however, who are interested in signing him.

The Brazil international has endured a frustrating start to life at the Nou Camp after his big money move to Barcelona from Liverpool for a reported 142 million pounds fee.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has somehow tweaked things in United and that gloomy cloud that had been hovering around the club has suddenly cleared.

United have returned to good shape and bringing in Coutinho this month or at the end of the season will definitely add a fine spark to the side.

Mundo Deportivo had claimed talks to bring him in this month was in the wings, but ESPN journalist David Aymoral has ruled out the possibility of that happening.

Aymoral told ESPN: “A deal looks rather unlikely in January, since the Blaugrana would want more than €100 million to even consider the departure of the crown jewel of their transfer campaign last winter.”

Barcelona are plotting a move to sign back Neymar after his move to Paris Saint-Germain and the sale of Coutinho should provide enough funds to get the Brazilian striker back.
