Bayern Munich reportedly make contact with Barcelona regarding the potential transfer of midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Bayern Munich.
Despite spending just 19 months at Camp Nou, Coutinho has been made available this summer as Barcelona look to raise the funds required to sign Neymar.
Coutinho seemingly has other ideas having turned down the opportunity to link up with a Premier League club on loan for the current campaign.
However, according to reports in Spain, Bayern have informed Barca that they are interested in coming to an agreement for the Brazil international’s signature.
The Bundesliga champions are keen to sign new creative players who are capable of playing on the flank, a search which has intensified given their failure to bring in Manchester City’s Leroy Sane.
Coutinho could again be left with a decision to make regarding his future, having previously indicated that he would prefer to fight for his future at Barcelona.
