Philippe Coutinho is going through his toughest spell since he signed for Barcelona in 2018. The Brazilian has lost his place in the team to Ousmane Dembele. The roles have been reversed. If before there were concerns about the Frenchman, now it's the former Liverpool man in the spotlight.
Coutinho seems down. In the last game, in the Copa del Rey against Levante, the Brazilian didn't even celebrate the penalty he scored. It's true that Barça were 2-0 down at the time, but his body language was clearly worrying.
So much so that English newspaper the Daily Mirror says he has not ruled out leaving Barça in the summer. At the moment, he's being patient and confident of turning things around, but if things haven't changed by the summer he will have a re-think.
Manchester United are one of the teams that have shown an interest in Barça's No.7 this month. The Red Devils have the money to do such a deal (Coutinho cost Barcelona 160 million euros), although it's unlikely the Catalan club would want to let go of such a talented player, even if he's having a bad moment right now.
