Coutinho attacting United interest

Manchester United are believed to be considering a remarkable swoop to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona this month.

Arturo Vidal and Ousmane Dembele have found themselves ahead of Coutinho in the pecking order at Camp Nou and now there are reports the Brazil international could be on his way back to the Premier League.

The former Liverpool star only joined the Blaugrana last January, with Barca paying a fee worth up to £142m for the talented playmaker.

However, his time in Catalonia has been hampered by injuries and now reports suggest United are at the front of the queue to try to land the 26-year-old attacker.

United will face stern competition for Coutinho's services, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain also believed to be keeping tabs on the situation at Barca.
