Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Saturday, August 15.

Saturday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:


Manchester United 'agree £10.8m deal for Filip Stevanovic'

Partizan teenager Filip Stevanovic is reportedly heading for Manchester United in a €12m (£10.8m) deal.

The 17-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for his Serbian club, scoring nine times and contributing three times in 35 appearances in all competitions.

Stevanovic played twice against United in the group stages of this season's Europa League and has previously been linked with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

However, according to Republika, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have agreed a €12m (£10.8m) deal for the youngster, who could officially arrive in the summer of 2021.

The report claims that Stevanovic is likely to spend another 12 months on loan with Partizan before linking up with the Premier League side next summer.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have also previously been linked with a player who largely operated as a left-sided attacker during the 2019-20 season.

The Serbia Under-19 international has scored nine times and contributed four assists in 42 appearances for Savo Milosevic's side in all competitions.



Philippe Coutinho agent opens door to Barcelona stay amid Arsenal links

Philippe Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian has insisted that his client could still stay at Barcelona this summer.

The 28-year-old is widely expected to leave Camp Nou during the current transfer window, having been loaned out to Bayern Munich this season and told that he is not part of Barca's long-term plans.

Bayern have decided against triggering their option to buy clause while Barcelona need to sell players in order to trim their wage bill, and a return to the Premier League has been touted as the most likely option.

Arsenal were thought to be leading the race for Coutinho's signature, but Joorabchian insists that no decision will be made until after the Champions League campaign comes to an end.

"After the Champions League is finished, and whatever happens, then we'll sit down," he told talkSPORT.

"It could be that Barcelona is the ultimate destination. He loves the Premier League, but the finances and the numbers and the situation of COVID are going to play a big part.

"He's a big player with big numbers."

Coutinho, whose Bayern side face his parent club Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League this evening, has scored nine goals and created eight more in 35 appearances for the German outfit this season.
