Manchester United work on signing Barcelona out-of-favor playmaker

    Under-pressure Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho could leave Camp Nou after less than two years of services, according to the media in England

    Brought in from Liverpool in January 2017, the Brazilian playmaker has never managed to repay the trust and £142m the Catalans invested in his acquisition.

    The former Inter Milan man has been dealing with immense problems in terms of form and consistency as well as his understanding with Leo Messi and Luis Suarez.

    Given the fact, Coutinho has bagged just four goals and provided two assists in 25 La Liga outings this term, a potential summer departure should not be ruled out.

    If the latest reports from Britain turn out to be true, Manchester United have already initiated contacts with the 26-year-old, offering him an escape route from Catalonia.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who could be appointed as the Red Devils full-time manager soon, intends to bolster his attacking options in the summer after Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard proved to be injury prone.

    Meanwhile, Coutinho has spent the most successful period of his career in the Premier League, and a potential return to the English top tier may be the best choice he can make at this moment.
