RUMOURS: BARCA CHOOSE COUTINHO ALTERNATIVES

Barcelona will look to the Bundesliga if their January pursuit of Philippe Coutinho fails, according to Sport.

The Camp Nou side were unable to sign the Liverpool player during the summer, and have chosen their alternatives if they are rebuffed once again. Max Meyer of Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt are top of their shortlist, with Barca already having made contact with both clubs.
