PHILIPPE COUTINHO is ready to deal Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a massive blow by rejecting the chance of a move to Old Trafford.

Barcelona need to offload several players so they can fund a return to the Camp Nou for Neymar and one of the players they are willing to lose is Coutinho, 27.

Coutinho’s £142million move to Barca 18 months ago has turned into a nightmare because he has struggled to find his best form.

Manchester United have had a long-standing interest in signing him while European champions Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also watching developments with interest.

But Coutinho isn’t interested in joining United because he still feels loyalty to his former employers Liverpool.
