Report – Man Utd move in to sign Philippe Coutinho

Manchester Utd

Liverpool fans would completely go crazy if their former favourite, Philippe Coutinho, ends up moving to Old Trafford.

In the summer, Andres Iniesta left Barcelona, and Coutinho was supposed to replace the legendary midfielder at the Nou Camp, but recently, he has been warming the bench under Valverde.

The 26-year-old star has so far made 16 league appearances in the current campaign, scored four goals and provided just a single assist.

Coutinho made his last league start for Barca against Villareal on December 02, 2018.

In the last four league games, he has only featured for a total of 62 minutes.

No United fan would mind if the club opts to sell Sanchez, who is past his best, to replace him with Coutinho, who is in his peak years.
