Philippe Coutinho’s possible move to Manchester United is the surprise saga of this January’s transfer window.
The former Liverpool man has fallen down the picking order and he is struggling for game time at Barcelona.
Coutinho’s problems were recently compounded when Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde called on him to improve his performances.
However, Coutinho isn’t keen on leaving Barcelona just yet.
That doesn’t mean he is against the idea of joining Manchester united. But he has one condition which must be met.
Sources close to the Brazilian understand that Coutinho would want to be given time to try and make things work at Barcelona.
In other words, he wants his decision to stay at Barcelona to be respected by other clubs before he decides for certain to leave Spain.
However United will have to come up with a Huge Bid if he decides to leave in the summer.
This means that a move to United in January is simply off the cards.
