Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a sensational return to Liverpool this summer, after falling out of favour at Barcelona.
The former Reds star signed for the Spanish giants back in January 2018 for a fee of £142 million, according to BBC Sport.

He looks almost certain to leave Barcelona this summer and now Le10 Sport is linking the Brazilian with a move back to Anfield.
The 27-year-old’s departure was somewhat acrimonious, however, and it may not be a popular signing among the Reds fans.
A move for the forward might be alright for the Reds as it would allow Liverpool to play a different way.
Coutinho can operate on the wing, or as a number 10 so that would give Jurgen Klopp options.
If he does sign, he will need to hit the ground running. Supporters will soon forget about the past if he comes in and does the business on the pitch.
Liverpool’s squad is strong and they shouldn’t pay over the odds for anyone, given that Liverpool is a club on the up.
Coutinho’s wage might be a concern. The Brazilian is paid £240k-a-week (Spotract) at Barcelona and that would make him the highest paid player at Anfield.

If he serious about reviving his career, however, he may be willing to budge on that.
