Marca are reporting that AC Milan have been offered the chance to sign Barcelona attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who is allegedly dreaming of a return to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
What’s the story?
Former Liverpool star Coutinho has been been offered to Milan, according to Marca.
The Italian giants are reportedly considering signing the Brazil international, who can also play as a winger.
Mundo Deportivo have also reported that the 29-year-old’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has made contact with Milan.
The Rossoneri need to sign a creative player following the departure of Hakan Calhanoglu.
Calhanoglu has left AC Milan and join city-rivals and defending Italian champions Inter Milan on a free transfer.
Philippe Coutinho’s Liverpool dream
Contact may have been made with Milan, but Coutinho’s dream is to play for Liverpool.
That’s according to a report in Sport last month.
It was claimed that the midfielder’s dream is to go back to Liverpool, but the Merseyside club are not looking to sign the 29-year-old, described by his Brazil international teammate and Reds forward Roberto Firmino as a “phenomenal” player who has “magical powers”, as quoted on FIFA.com in October 2020.
AC Milan move makes sense
If Liverpool are not willing to re-sign Coutinho and Milan want him, then it would make sense for the 29-year-old to join the Italian club.
Coutinho was successful during his time at Liverpool, but the Reds have moved on.
The Brazilian may not have a starting place in the system that Liverpool now play under manager Klopp.
