Man Utd reject Coutinho talks

Manchester United have gone cold on Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

The Manchester Evening News says United are not interested in a move for former Liverpool midfielder Coutinho this summer.

The Red Devils are reportedly favouring moves for either Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) or James Maddison (Leicester City), with United searching for more creativity up top.

The Brazilian has become somewhat of a misfit since his big-money move away from Anfield in 2018, failing to make the desired impact for Barcelona, with Bayern Munich offering no real escape route.

Barcelona reportedly keen to offload the midfielder due to his drastic wages, but United turned down the opportunity to speak to the 27-year-old.
