Phillipe Coutinho to Manchester United transfer rumours just won’t go away.
The Mirror report that the Reds are still keeping tabs on the Barcelona midfielder who has an uncertain future at the Nou Camp.
Speaking while on international duty during the Copa America for Brazil, Coutinho said:
“I have a contract with Barcelona, it was always my will to succeed in this club.
“But now I am totally concentrated here [with Brazil] and about the future [with Barca] we do not know what will happen.
“Many things that come out in the media are simply not true but as for my future we do not know what is going to happen, that is the truth,” he added as quoted by the Mirror.
The move from Liverpool to Barcelona has not been at all successful for Coutinho; you would think he may have regretted leaving just as Jurgen Klopp was starting to build something.
A move back to the Premier League in the shape of United however – cannot, should not, and will not happen.
Coutinho would be overpriced if the Reds were serious about signing him and United fans will not just be put off because he is a former Liverpool player; he has failed to live up to his hype since joining the Catalan giants.
