Man City's First 2019/20 Signing Revealed?

The 27-year-old got his Barca career off to a good start when he joined them in January 2018, but his first full season with the Catalan giants was one to forget.

The Brazilian had some moments that led to many questioning his place in the team, with supporters booing him on several occasions at the Camp Nou.

According to Sky Sports, United were ready to make a swoop for his signature, but Paris Saint-Germain have now emerged as favourites to sign the playmaker.

It has been claimed that Coutinho does not want to join the Red Devils out of respect to his former club Liverpool, arguably United's biggest English rivals.

The attacking midfielder spent five years with the Reds, during which he became a fan favourite. He scored 54 goals and assisted a further 45 strikes in 201 appearances for the Merseyside club.
