Indicating the uncertainty of his future at Barcelona, the Spanish side are reportedly in thoughts of offloading Philippe Coutinho in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Brazilian arrived at Camp Nou in 2018 from Liverpool for a hefty fee of €160 million and is now enjoying his football career at Bayern Munich, on a loan contract. The Germans have an offer to retain the player if they wish to keep him permanently for a fee of €120 million.

Nevertheless, in an event that the Bundesliga side fail to do so, then the Catalan club is inclined to sell the 27-year-old to any other clubs interested in securing the attacking midfielder’s services.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reports that speculations have arose linking Premier League giants, namely Tottenham Hotspur, Man Utd and Chelsea with the right footer.

As of now, it still remains unclear whether the Brazil international would be concerned with a move back to the English League, but nonetheless if those three clubs have him under their radar, a transfer deal could most probably materialise next summer.

The Red Devils and Spurs are only mentioned owing to the interest those sides portrayed the previous summer. The credibility of speculations of current interest of those clubs is at the moment unsettled.

Having secured the Japanese talent Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg, the likelihood of the ex-Liverpool star rejoining Liverpool is minimum. With the Reds still unbeaten in the Premier League, the Japan international will join their crew in January to bolster up their offence anyway.

With the transfer ban imposed by FIFA having lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, Chelsea seem to be a potential club for a potential transfer. Frank Lampard could use this opportunity to rope in the Brazilian in order to fill the hole left behind by the departure of Eden Hazard.
