The Brazilian has failed to justify his £142 million transfer fee and Spanish media have been less than complimentary about the midfielder recently.

Marca are reporting that Coutinho's confidence has taken a massive hit after his recent performances and that he's now at "rock bottom".

According to Mundo Deportivo, United have contacted Coutinho's agents to ask about his situation and admit they would be "very interested" in signing him.

He's now played 34 at the time of writing, meaning the first payment has already been triggered - while Barca have already paid £4.4 million after qualifying for this season's Champions League and will do so again if they are in Europe's premier competition again next year as expected.

Should they win the Champions League and Coutinho be part of the squad, a further £4.4 million payment is due to the Anfield club.

It is online a year since Coutinho sealed his mega money switch to Barcelona, to become the club's most expensive ever signing and the most costly in La Liga history.

Coutinho instantly won silverware upon his move last season, joining up with a Barca side who were well in front in the race for the La Liga title.

Therefore, Liverpool could miss out on a hefty £22 million if Coutinho leaves Spain this month.

Manchester United's potential new manager Mauricio Pochettino will not be allowed to leave Tottenham even if they are offered £50m to prise him to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
