Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has reportedly decided he’s set to let Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele leave in this transfer window. Barca looks ready for a major rebuilding project after last campaign’s nightmarish season under Ernesto Valverde and then Quique Setien, with the club now under its third coach in the space of a year.
The Dutch tactician is seemingly keen to get rid of Philippe and Ousmane as he focuses on addition Memphis Depay from Lyon, while teenager Ansu Fati is also expected to have a crucial role in the first-team this campaign.
This could be good news for Gunners and Man United if it frees up Coutinho and Dembele, both of whom have been recently linked with moves to the PL. As seen below, the London giants look ready to revive their offer to bring in Brazil international on loan from the Catalan club.
France international, meanwhile, has been targeted by Red Devils on loan, with some initial talks supposedly taking place. The 28-year-old playmaker could clearly do a job for the Gunners if he gets back to his best, with the attacker once up there with the very finest midfielders in the world in his time at Anfield.
If he could revive his career with a come back to England, the Brazilian playmaker could be an ideal replacement for the struggling Mesut Ozil. The 23-year-old winger, meanwhile, could also be an important signing to boost the Red Devils front-line, with upgrades surely needed on the likes of Daniel James and Jesse Lingard.
