Philippe Coutinho heading to the Premier League?

Chelsea, United in the running for Coutinho?

Philippe Coutinho's agent is reportedly being swarmed by top Premier League sides, who are keen on luring the attacker from Barcelona.

The Brazil international has struggled to hold onto a regular spot with the Blaugrana in the past 18 months and this has linked him with a probable return to England with either Chelsea or Manchester United.

According to Spanish publication AS, the 26-year-old could be headed for a swift return to the English top-flight during the summer with his representative said to have received multiple offers from Premier League sides.

The publication has not named any of the teams interested but Chelsea and United have been heavily linked with the former Reds playmaker over the past six months.

Coutinho has struggled to play through the entire 90 minutes of games this term and the midweek Champions League clash against Liverpool witnessed the same as he was substituted after the hour mark.

Despite the recent speculation, the Blaugrana hierarchy have on multiple occasions suggested that the Brazilian won't be parting ways with the club when the season concludes.
