Mundo Deportivo: Milan option cannot be excluded as Coutinho is set to leave Barcelona

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in the market for a new attacking midfielder and it appears Philippe Coutinho of Barcelona could be an option, according to a report.

Spanish source Mundo Deportivo (via MilanNews) writes how Coutinho is expected in Barcelona this week to carry out the usual medical examinations before the start of the new season, but despite this his future with the Catalan club is very uncertain.

Indeed, it could be a passing visit for the Brazil international because his agent is at work to find a new team for his client. The Brazilian’s priority is a return to the Premier League where he starred with Liverpool, but the idea of a move to Milan cannot be ruled out either.

Coutinho was a signing that cost Barca over €160m as per most sources, and he has amassed just 23 goals and 14 assists in 90 appearances during an injury-riddled time at the Nou Camp.
