Photo: Reported Man United target joins Liverpool ‘phenomenon’ for selfie
Former Man United target Neymar takes a selfie with Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho
Philippe Coutinho joined Manchester United target Neymar for a selfie as the Brazilian pair caught up during the international break on Friday night.
The Barcelona forward emerged as a surprise big-money target for the Red Devils during the summer transfer window as United sought a marquee signing.
However, the speculation came to nothing as United opted for Monaco teenager Anthony Martial, who cost the Red Devils a princely sum of £36m.
And Barca striker Neymar is happy to leave the role of Brazilian “phenomenon” in the Premier League to his compatriot Coutinho.
Neymar wrote on his Instagram page: “With the phenomenon @ phil.coutinho ⚽️ #Treino”
Coutinho has made a mixed start to the new Premier League season.
The 23-year-old scored a brilliant long-range winner in a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at The Britannia in their opening game of the season.
However, Coutinho was sent off in his latest Liverpool game for two bookable offences in a 3-0 defeat by West Ham United at Anfield.
