Barcelona ready to offload Philipe Coutinho amid Man United links



– Philippe Coutinho could be allowed to leave Barcelona if they are offered right deal

– The Brazilian is in his second season at the Camp Nou after joining them in 2017

– Man United and Chelsea have shown interest in signing the 26-year-old this year

Barcelona are reportedly interested in selling Brazil forward Philippe Coutinho but only to the club that are ready to offer enough for his services.

The 26-year-old joined the Catalans in a six year deal valued around £142 million in the summer of 2017, but has not been able to live up to his billings at the Camp Nou.

Daily Star reported earlier this year that Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea have shown interest in signing the former Inter Milan man.

Spanish football expert Sid Lowe reveals that Barcelona are ready to give up on the player less than 18 months into his stay in Spain but are looking for the right offer.

I think Coutinho stays unless they can find someone who will pay a sufficiently high transfer fee to take him that he would be happy to go to,” Lowe said on the Global Football Show podcast.

The attacker will get a chance to impress his suitors when the Red Devils battle Barca in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Earlier, repored that Philippe Coutinho has taken Barcelona to the limit following his below par performance against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey, reports in Spain claim.

The Brazilian was signed in the January window of 2018 from Liverpool for a staggering £142million as the Nou Camp outfit attempted to ease pressure on Lionel Messi after Neymar left for Paris Saint-Germain.
