Mauricio Pochettino calls Philippe Coutinho as Brazilian nears loan move

Philippe Coutinho seeks Premier League return as Barcelona say he can leave on loan just 18 months after signing for £142m

Coutinho moved to FC Barcelona in a £142m deal from Liverpool FC in the 2018 January transfer window following months of speculation linking the 27-year-old with a move to the Spanish giants.

Regardless, Manchester United "have made their interest" in Coutinho known, but that's as far as it goes.

The Brazilian has been offered to several clubs with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believed to have been interested in securing a season-long loan before the transfer window slams shut on Thursday.

Coutinho is set to move to Tottenham for a fee of €23m and Spurs will also cover 100 per cent of his €12m salary.

And SPORT also make the blockbuster claim Manchester United have investigated a deal for Coutinho - despite his previous spell with bitter rivals Liverpool, although Starsport understands Spurs are the only Premier League club in the running.

"The Brazil worldwide is out of favour at Camp Nou and reports in Spain and France have linked the Gunners with the former Liverpool player, with some even stating that a deal was close to completion". Such is the contrast in reports, it's hard to tell what either Coutinho or Barcelona want to do this summer with regards to his future.

However, it seems as though Poch's attempts to woo the Brazilian have been unsuccessful, with Sky now reporting that Coutinho has turned down the chance to move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs start their 2019-20 Premier League campaign with a clash against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Spurs are now being linked with Juventus talisman Paulo Dybala and an update on the same can be expected soon.

Eriksen looks no closer to signing a contract extension and Italian sides have until August 23 to sign him, while clubs in Spain, Germany and France can sign new players until September 2.

Speaking following a pre-season game against Napoli, Valverde said, "we do not know what will happen, but Philippe is a player who is with us".

Speaking in Miami, he added: 'Of course I talk to him, but he has to be the one to speak out.
