Barcelona hatch £77m transfer plan as Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea eye Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho has been told he can leave Barcelona for a cut-price £77m this summer in the hope of attracting Premier League interest. The Brazilian playmaker is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, and they have got a £102m option to make the deal permanent.

Barcelona want to make several changes to their squad this summer and are planning to offload a number of players to fund the revolution under Quique Setien.

The Catalan giants are eager to ensure that they can sell Coutinho, who has already attracted interest from Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham

Express Sport understands they are willing to take a massive hit on the £142m they paid Premier League champions-elect Liverpool to lure him to Spain in January 2018

Coutinho has struggled firstly at Barca and now isn’t impressing at Bayern, who have already made up their minds not to take up the option to buy.

Bayern would prefer to land Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, who is also on the summer shopping list of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp might push to be re-united with Coutinho if he misses out on his first choice Havertz, especially now the asking price has been slashed
