PSG make €270m offer for Barcelona star

PSG have made a bid of €270 million (£238m/$317m) for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho, reports Mundo Deportivo .

Coutinho’s contract has a €400m (£353m/$470m) release clause, but the French club have sent the offer to one of the former Liverpool midfielder’s agents, for it to be forwarded to Barcelona.

Indeed, Neymar, who joined the club from Camp Nou last summer, is close friends with Coutinho, and PSG plan to reunite the pair in an extravagant bid to keep the Brazilian winger at the club.
