Manchester United open talks with agent of Philippe Coutinho?

Barcelona are now first in the La Liga table. The club is five points above Atletico Madrid for first place and 10 points up on Sevilla.

It also reports that Coutinho and his family are settled in Catalunya and he doesn't plan on seeking a move away. The Brazilian has made only 9 starts in La Liga so far, making 16 appearances.

Scoring two and assisting another, Luis Suarez produced a fine individual showing in a game where his partner in crime Messi will receive all the plaudits for his landmark goal.


The same article states that the La Liga champions are prepared to listen to offer for the Brazilian playmaker after a disappointing 12 months for the former Liverpool FC star at Camp Nou.

And the Standard report that Barca are stepping up efforts "behind the scenes" to bring Neymar back from Paris Saint-Germain, with that purchase funded by the offloading of Coutinho. Italian media outlet Il Messaggero has said that United, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, are at the front of the queue to sign the 22-year-old who is said to have a £27m release clause in his current contract.

However, with a noticeable dip in Coutinho's recent performance and Ernesto Valverde's preference for young Ousmane Dembele on the wing, the 26-year-old Brazilian has found himself in a hard situation, with slight criticism beginning to come from team management.


The transfer is to fund a deal for the player he came in to replace at the Catalan club; Neymar.

However, Tuchel has moved to counter those talks, saying: "I think Neymar feels really happy, he's professional", said the coach to reporters.

Eibar were pressing high up the pitch ten minutes before time and were vulnerable to counter-attacks, however the tempo of the match slowd down towards the end of the half as Barça took the odd goal lead into the dressing room.
