PSG make world record bid for former Liverpool ace, Coutinho

Cristiano Ronaldo

Coutinho starred in Brazil's 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign that ended this weekend in the quarter-final and PSG's cheeky move will no doubt strain the relationship between the two club's even further after the highly publicised Neymar debacle in August a year ago.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly lining up a world-record £240m move for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho in a bid to keep star player Neymar happy.

The former Santos has been linked with a return to LaLiga in recent months, and it is being reported that Real Madrid are the ones keen on bringing the forward back to Spain.

With the La Liga Champions still reeling from losing Neymar after PSG triggered his €220m release clause, it is thought that they would be reluctant to do business with them again, and could force them to shell out Coutinho's release clause which stands at a whopping €400m.

Phillipe Coutinho has instantly started to impress at Camp Nou after joining the Blaugrana giants in a stunning deal of about £142 million pounds with netting 10 goals and providing 6 assists.

ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon reported Tuesday that Houston's initial offer is in the ballpark of four years and $60 million. The 31-year-old forward played in 61 regular season games, averaging 7.5 points and at least one steal a game.

Do you think PSG will be able to tempt Barca into selling Coutinho?

Boosting the club's coffers would be the most obvious reason for Barcelona to sell their new star man.

And according to Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo , PSG want to reunite Neymar with his countryman.

The Daily Mirror's Martin Domin wrote that PSG's interest remains despite the club already being under investigation by UEFA for a possible breach of financial fair play laws.

PSG were hoping that it could've taken place had France faced Brazil in the World Cup semi-final on Tuesday evening, but Neymar and his nation were knocked out by Belgium.
