Philippe Coutinho probably has no future in either Munich or Barcelona. A sale seems the most realistic scenario. Three clubs have made contact.
The first interested parties knock on Philippe Coutinho (27). As reported by the ‘Mundo Deportivo’, Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City have contacted the Brazilian’s advisor. Interest is also said to have been deposited with FC Barcelona. Unofficially, Newcastle United has also given its business card.
Coutinho himself can well imagine a return to the Premier League. Recently, reports have been circulating repeatedly that a future at Bayern or Barça is not excluded, but a permanent farewell to the Catalans is far more likely.
Because Barcelona has other transfer destinations and hopes for a handsome transfer. A renewed loan is therefore out of the question for the Blaugrana. First of all, FC Bayern wants to expand the current loan business until the end of August so that Coutinho can still help in the fight for the Champions League.
