Last week there have been rumours that Philippe Coutinho could move to Manchester United.
Coutinho only played seven minutes in Barcelona‘s narrow 2-1 win over Getafe on Sunday and Manchester United were reportedly ‘in talks’ over a potential move which would cost in excess of £100million.
According to EveningStandard, Barcelona are considering selling Philippe Coutinho in order to fund a move for Neymar.
However, Spanish journalist Marcelo Bechler has refuted claims that Coutinho could move to Old Trafford, by insisting that United have not made a proposal.
Informações que apurei aqui em Barcelona.
1- Não chegou nenhuma proposta do Man. United a Philippe Coutinho.
2- existem conversas avançadas com De Jong, mas também empecilhos. O jogador quer saber que vai jogar e acha que se o clube contratar Rabiot, ficará sem espaço.

Reports have also suggested that Liverpool could even try to secure a return to Anfield for Coutinho.
The Brazil international is only a year into his contract at the Camp Nou following his £142million move from Liverpool last January.
