Welcome back to our daily transfer round-up section, and it’s good to see you all after a weeks gap! While nothing major has happened in the last week with respect to major transfer news, there was still activity and news that is worth being analysed and dissected. So without further ado, here is a list of the biggest transfer story for the top six clubs in the Premier League for the day…
#6 Manchester United
Coutinho ‘enticed’ by United transfer possibility
Philippe Coutinho is very tempted by a potential move to Manchester United, as per reports in Spain. Mundo Deportivo has hinted that the playmaker will give a shock move to United some thought after becoming highly-unhappy with the lack of minutes at Barcelona. The former Liverpool midfielder has struggled to stake a claim for a regular first team role since joining Barcelona last January and has missed out on the starting line ups of the last four league matches.
He will not hesitate to contemplate moves to clubs like United if he does not start playing more regularly for Barca. Not surprisingly, however, there are two things complicating chances of such a shock move. Firstly, the Brazilian apparently is not yet giving up on his Barcelona dream, with no plans of leaving during the current transfer window. Secondly, and perhaps more notably, it is still unclear if United will sanction a move for the midfielder when their priority is to sign a new central defender. This is the next summer transfer soap opera, isn’t it?
