Barcelona rattled as Juventus plot sensational bid for Liverpool star Coutinho

Juventus are sensationally jumping into the battle for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho.

The subject of intense interest from Barcelona, PSG and Real Madrid ahead of the January market, Coutinho is now being offered a return to Italy.

Juve, reports Don Balon, want to being the former Inter Milan midfielder back to Serie A - and are prepared to outbid all rivals for the Brazil international.

Less than 18 months after paying over €90m to land Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli, Juve are now prepared to pay a stunning €175 MILLION to convince Liverpool to sell Coutinho.

Juve recognise their midfield needs renewing and are prepared to build their system around Coutinho.

The offer is far superior to what Barca are willing to offer - a €140m proposal, though with €80m up front and the remainder dependent on bonuses.
