Why Manchester United should keep off Coutinho

Manchester United have been told to avoid signing Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho this summer by Danny Murphy.

“While the Old Trafford tourists will turn up to see Messi and the boo-boys will have Luis Suarez in their sights, I’ll be interested to see what impact Philippe Coutinho has,” he wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“Coutinho has been linked with a move to United because his transfer from Liverpool hasn’t worked out as well as expected.

“My view is United have more pressing priorities than the Brazilian, namely a midfield playmaker to finally replace Michael Carrick and a defensive leader in the mould of Virgil van Dijk – maybe Toby Alderweireld.”
