Why Philippe Coutinho’s family could pull plug on Manchester United switch

Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho’s future is again the source of much speculation just a year after arriving from Liverpool in a £142m deal.

Coutinho has been linked with a move to Manchester United, however, his family may stop him from returning to the Premier League.

The Brazilian has no plans to walk away from La Liga club just yet but may consider his future in the summer.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the family are unlikely to be keen on a return to England.  Coutinho and his wife Aine recently celebrated the birth of a baby daughter and they are happy and settled in Barcelona and would not want to up and start a new life back in England.
