Paris Saint-Germain 'eye £240m Philippe Coutinho swoop'

PSG ready to make staggering offer for Coutinho Paris Saint-Germain reportedly want to pay a world record fee for Philippe Coutinho
Shannon Reynolds | 10 July, 2018, 19:16

The former Barcelona man only moved to PSG for a world record fee last summer but a return to Spain is on the cards if the latest reports are to be believed.

There had been suggestions that Real Madrid would try and bring Neymar to the Bernabeu but should Suarez arrive he is ready to affirm his commitment to PSG.

Coutinho, 26, joined Barca for a reported £142m (R2.5b) from Liverpool in January and is widely expected to become a key figure to the LaLiga champions next season.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly launched a world-record bid to land FC Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo are now reporting that Barça club sources have made it clear that Coutinho will not be allowed to leave for anything less than his release clause figure - which is believed to be around the €400m (£350m) mark.

Mbappe impressed in his first season at the club with 21 goals and 16 assists in 46 appearances and has made an impact for France at the World Cup this summer.

Neymar has formed an impressive partnership with forwards Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe as PSG stormed to the Ligue 1 title last season, although his relationship with Cavani remains strained after the players fell out over penalty duties. The Brazilian maestro was courted for over a year by Barcelona before eventually sealing what he described as a "dream move" from Liverpool.

Neymar has endured a tough last few months with a bad injury ending his season early in Paris and a hard World Cup campaign ending in an exit at the quarter-finals stage.

The Brazilian star is still licking his wounds following the countries World Cup exit at the hands of Belgium on Friday night but his attention is already turning to his club future.
