Manchester United suffered a blow in their search for Philippe Coutinho, as two new pioneers emerged.

Coutinho decided to exchange Anfield for the Camp Nou in January 2018, joining the Catalan team in a colossal deal of £ 142 million (€ 165 million), making him the second most expensive player of all time.

With these struggles, strong speculations have emerged claiming that Manchester United is interested in a summer move, While Liverpool are also linked to an attempt to re-hire him.

Stamford Bridge was mentioned as a possible destination for the former Inter Milan man, with Chelsea preparing to replace Eden Hazard if he moved to Madrid.

On Monday news surfaced that Barcelona is worried about Coutinho's mental state, fearing that he is in a "depression" that he can not leave while at the Nou Camp.

Now, a report of the departure of Spanish Sport provides a shock update, stating that PSG and Chelsea are the two teams battling for Coutinho.

They suggest that Coutinho is, in fact, seen as the ideal substitute for dangers, and that Parisians "have always kept the interest" of the 26-year-old.

The Blues are currently under a transfer ban that will prevent them from hiring players for the next two transfer windows, but speculation suggests that the appeal will be successful and the ban will be suspended before the 2019-20 campaign.
