Barcelona star rejects loan move to London-based club

Philippe Coutinho

Mauricio Pochettino's side are in a transfer scramble with Manchester United and Arsenal after Barcelona offered him out to clubs across Europe.

What to Expect - Spurs will continue to impress under the guidance of Pochettino and turn the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium into a fortress.

Although Arsenal have already dealt with Joorabchian to bring Edu back to the club as their technical director, Molina stresses that Coutinho's agent has a habit of using the media for his own personal gain, already rubbing the likes of Queens Park Rangers and Brazilian giants Corinthians the wrong way with his tactics.

Philippe Coutinho has seemingly rejected the chance to move to Tottenham on a season-long loan. Such is the contrast in reports, it's hard to tell what either Coutinho or Barcelona want to do this summer with regards to his future.

The signing of Coutinho would give Arsenal something of a lopsided look heading into the 2019-20 Premier League season.

Argentine superstar Lionel Messi has not travelled with the Barcelona squad for their mini-tour to the United States - they will play Napoli again in MI on Saturday - because of a calf injury.

If this move happens then it will obviously be a top signing for Arsenal but it has also created a few doubts in the fans mind since Unai Emery will have to sacrifice a forward player in order to accommodate the Brazilian. "He's a splendid player, but we haven't talked about Coutinho at any time". "We won La Liga last season which was great, but we should control expectations with the Champions League".

Inter Miami will make their MLS debut next March but are yet to appoint a coach.

'Of course I am counting on him, ' Valverde said.
