Man Utd legend Cole: Barcelona would accept Coutinho offer

Manchester United legend Andy Cole believes Barcelona would be willing to sell Philippe Coutinho.

Having endured an inconsistent season for the Blaugrana, the former Liverpool man has been linked with a return to England, namely United and Chelsea.

And Cole thinks the Catalan giants would be willing to sell.

"To spend that kind of money on an individual you would expect him to play week-in, week-out but it seems Barcelona would be willing to let him go if they get the right offer for him," Cole told BeIN Sports.

"They have got a talented kid there in [Ousmane] Dembele though.

"If he can stick to turning up on time instead of sleeping in! He's special, but seems he can't get out of bed in the morning."
