Liverpool trying for return of £142m star as Manchester United rumors clarified

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 EveningStandardBarcelona 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.

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.
