Spanish giants Barcelona have reportedly lowered the asking price of attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

According to The Express, the Brazilian is now available at a price of approximately of €90m, with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and former club Liverpool all potential suitors for his signature.

Coutinho is currently on-loan in Germany with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and despite racking up a respectable seven goals and eight assists in all competitions this season in Bavaria, the club are currently not looking to activate the €120m buy-out clause in the deal.

The 27-year-old’s stock has continued to drop since his big-money move to Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018. Despite his inspired performances for the Reds in the Premier League, he struggled to adapt to life in Catalonia, scoring only 18 goals in all competitions across two seasons before joining Bayern on a temporary deal.

That has lead to reports that Barcelona would be willing to offload Coutinho in the 2020 summer window, hence the lowering of their asking price.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian’s current employers Bayern are in a race for the 2019/20 Bundesliga crown. The Bavarian outfit are currently one point clear of nearest challengers RB Leipzig at the top of the table and can be backed at a price of 2/5 with Betfair to win the league.
