Chelsea and especially Manchester United have been linked to Coutinho this silly season, but according to reports in Italy, it’s Paris Saint-Germain who are the front-runners now. writes that: “Coutinho will not come cheap for whoever buys him and PSG may appear as the most likely destination if the Brazilian is to leave Barcelona.”
