Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho is keen on joining French giants Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.
The 26-year-old endured a difficult season in Catalonia and he admitted as much earlier this month with several interested parties in the attacking midfielder.
Manchester United have been heavily linked over the summer but there are several reasons why the transfer won’t happen. One of them apparently being that Coutinho won’t consider moving to Old Trafford out of respect for Liverpool.
It now seems the most obvious destination for the Brazil international will be PSG, with Sport (via the Daily Mirror) claiming that Coutinho is ready to join the Ligue 1 outfit.
The Spanish outlet previously informed us that Barca had made a €100m plus Coutinho offer for Neymar, which means Coutinho’s interest in a deal could pave the way for Neymar to return to the Camp Nou.
