Aston Villa playmaker Philippe Coutinho wants to leave the Premier League side and return to Brazil, with Corinthians showing interests.
Philippe Coutinho is willing to leave Aston Villa and return to Brazil, GOAL says. Coutinho (30) only signed a four-year permanent deal back in May and has attracted interest from Corinthians. His agent, Kia Joorabchian, has a respectable relationship with the Brazilian side but it’s almost impossible for a deal to happen due to the playmaker’s high salary. Corinthians could try to land the 30-year-old on loan, with both clubs paying part of his salary. There is also a chance Villa could terminate Coutinho’s deal but that scenario is regarded to be more faraway.
Coutinho came to Aston Villa under Steven Gerrard, the head coach of Villa. However, his form has faded and has only featured only six Premier League games so far in 2022-23.
