Arsenal and Manchester City will fight for Philippe Coutinho
Philippe Coutinho does not plan to return to Barcelona. He wants to come back to the English Premier League. Arsenal and Manchester City will fight for the player.
Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who is currently loaned to Bayern Munich, does not want to return to the Catalan club.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Brazilian star admits that his career in Blaugrana has already finished. Moreover, the 28-year-old informed the management of Barcelona that the club should give preference to the offers of English grandees.
According to the same source, the situation around Coutinho is closely monitored by two English clubs, Arsenal and Manchester City. So, they will fight for the player and have to pay 80 million euros for Philippe, the amount that Barcelona is currently asking for in exchange for the player.
Despite the desire to return to the Premier League, Philippe Coutinho is not interested in any other team before the expiration of his lease with the Bayern Munich. According to reports, the Brazilian will make a decision about his future after the end of the Champions League.
As you may know, Barcelona added Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool in January 2018 for 120 million euros. But the player was not able to play as before, which is why the Catalans let Philippe go on loan to Bayern last summer.
