Transfer: Coutinho takes final decision on joining Manchester United from Barcelona

Transfer: Coutinho takes final decision on joining Manchester United from Barcelona

The former Liverpool FC number 10 opted to move to FC Barcelona to link up with his ex-Reds strike partner Luis Suarez and Argentina legend Lionel Messi.

The Brazil worldwide has been left out of the starting XI in each of Barcelona's last four games, and is believed to be growing increasingly unhappy with his marginalised role.

Also linked with a move to Old Trafford is Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Barcelona could reportedly consider selling Philippe Coutinho just a year after making the Brazilian the third most expensive player of all time, if it means the club being able to fund a seismic deal to take Neymar back to Camp Nou.

He's now played 34 at the time of writing, meaning the first payment has already been triggered - while Barca have already paid £4.4 million after qualifying for this season's Champions League and will do so again if they are in Europe's premier competition again next year as expected. He has been warned he must knuckle down and fight for his place by boss Ernesto Valverde. It has led to reports that he could be on his way out of Barca in the summer. But Barcelona will only listen to offers that will see them pocket the same fee they paid for the player, reports Calcio Mercato.

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.

United face having to pay close to the £142m for Coutinho, which would be a record for the Premier League.

Manchester United could be set to give their squad two massive boosts, according to the latest transfer rumours. United already have good forwards like Martial, Lingard, Sanchez and Rashford.
