PSG keen to land Barca ace

3rd April 2019, 02:45 by Michael Holland

Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be in the hunt to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona should he leave the Nou Camp in the summer.

The Brazilian playmaker has been linked with an exit from Barca just 18 months after joining from Liverpool, and PSG are said to be keen on doing a deal.

Coutinho cost the Catalan club £142million and, despite scoring 19 and assisting 11 in his first 64 appearances, has failed to nail down a regular spot in their starting eleven.

Reports in Spain on Tuesday claim that Barca are willing to let the 26-year-old leave for £110m.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Coutinho recently told friends he accepts things are not working out with the La Liga giants.

He is reported to have said: "I am thinking about leaving Barcelona, I know that it is a difficult decision, but it can be the best thing for my career."

A return to the Premier League, possibly with Manchester United, is said to be Coutinho's preferred option, but PSG are in the hunt, and the chance to link up with Neymar, could appeal.
