Barcelona name hefty asking price for Manchester United target Coutinho
Barcelona are willing to let Philippe Coutinho leave this summer – but only for a price of £90 million.
Manchester United and Chelsea are among the potential suitors for the midfielder, who has not reproduced the form that landed him a £105 milllion move to Catalonia since arriving last January.
With Barca signing Frenkie de Jong for £65 million, and chasing his current Ajax team-mate Matthijs de Ligt for a similar fee, they are looking to balance the books by offloading Coutinho.
While Coutinho is supposedly happy at the Camp Nou, he raised suspicions that he could be content with a move away with comments about his future this week.
However, the £90 million asking price reported by ESPN could put off Manchester United – who are prepared to pay almost as much for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho – and Chelsea are set to face a transfer ban that would scupper any move.
