  • Philippe Coutinho

Overall, Coutinho has made 23 appearances for Barcelona this season, scoring five goals and assisting in another four.

The report claims that United are more likely than PSG, Chelsea or Manchester City to sign the 26-year-old, attributed to the fact they have made "early contact" with Barcelona chiefs over a shock move, while no information is given on their stance on the matter.

Ousmane Dembele has filled a role on the left of Barca's attacking unit as Valverde explores other options, while Arturo Vidal and Arthur are being preferred in more central midfield berths.

However, a quick look through twitter this afternoon shows that the Old Trafford faithful are pretty used to their club being used as a pawn to sell papers, and their fans certainly don't look to be believing these latest transfer rumours...

The MEN state this is among the reasons why the Red Devils won't pursue a deal as they're not interested in indirectly funding their rivals' title charge.

Barcelona director Guillermo Amor has insisted that Philippe Coutinho has "a lot to give" for the Catalan giants despite struggling for regular football in recent weeks.

"Coutinho's a player with a lot of experience, one of the best players in Europe and he is ready to play [for] five minutes or 90 minutes", he said during an interview with Movistar.

He has not started a game since December 2 and saw just seven minutes of action during a 2-1 victory over Getafe on Sunday .

A player of Philippe Coutinho's caliber is too good to warm the bench.

"He is a player who thinks more of the team than himself and there is no doubt that he is one of the best players in the world".

We recruited him because he is one of the best in the world and he is going to give us a lot.
