Chelsea and Manchester United contact Philippe Coutinho's agent to discuss a potential deal for the Barcelona attacker, according to a report.

Chelsea and Manchester United have reportedly both contacted Philippe Coutinho's agent to discuss a potential deal for the Barcelona attacker during this summer's transfer window.

Coutinho is currently on loan at Bayern Munich and has been in relatively strong form for the German outfit this season, scoring nine times and registering eight assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.

The 27-year-old is due to return to Barca this summer, but the Spanish champions are allegedly keen to move him on once again, which has led to a host of speculation.

According to Mundo Deportivo, both Chelsea and United have been in contact with Coutinho's representative Kia Joorabchian to discuss a possible deal ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

The report claims that the Brazil international is keen on a return to the Premier League, where he starred for Liverpool between 2013 and 2018 before arriving at Camp Nou.

Leicester City and Newcastle United are also believed to be closely monitoring developments.
