JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM -- Philippe Coutinho is likely to leave Barcelona this summer, but he will not move to Manchester United in honor of his former club Liverpool, Sky Sports News reported on Monday (06/17/2019).

United are currently monitoring the Coutinho situation, with his price now far down from the £ 142 million (around IDR 2.56 trillion) paid by Barcelona when they signed him from Liverpool in January.

However, a rumor emerged that the Brazilian midfielder's representative was holding an initial discussion with Paris Saint-Germain regarding a possible transfer opportunity this summer.

Coutinho is currently with the Brazilian squad at the Copa America and he acknowledges that his performance is far from expectations.

The 27-year-old scored 11 goals in 54 appearances last season, a third of which was scored as a substitute.

Barcelona supporters often jeered on Coutinho while on the pitch because he could not perform improperly with his high transfer price (Sky Sports source), as reported by Antara.
