The Brazil global is only a year into his contract at the Camp Nou following his £142million move from Liverpool last January. The likes of Koulibaly and Skriniar are all linked with a move to Old Trafford.

It is online a year since Coutinho sealed his mega money switch to Barcelona, to become the club's most expensive ever signing and the most costly in La Liga history.

It has now been reported that the former Liverpool midfielder has caught the interest of Manchester United.

While that deal seems unlikely, Liverpool should just be hoping Coutinho stays at the Camp Nou for a while longer. But things haven't worked out for the Brazilian, who has failed to replicate the form that persuaded Barcelona to cough up for his services.

He opened his goalscoring account in a 2-0 victory over Valencia in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg in February and finished the campaign strongly, scoring 10 goals and making six assists in his last 16 appearances of 2017-18. He has been warned he must knuckle down and fight for his place by boss Ernesto Valverde.

Where exactly Coutinho could go if Barça were looking to find a buyer remains to be seen.

Coutinho is said to have reached rock bottom with the Spanish side after he's fallen down the pecking order and is unhappy with his lack of minutes on the pitch. But already the player's future is in doubt after the latest report suggests he could now be moved on in the summer. The La Liga leaders are looking to cash in on to fund a move for Neymar.

Manchester United are said to be keeping close tabs on the former Real Madrid playmaker as Solskjaer look to bolster his team at the middle of the park.

That's because Coutinho's £142 million deal contained a number of clauses.
