EPL: Rio Ferdinand suggests club Coutinho could join the Premier League

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand urged Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho to make a transfer to join Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

According to Ferdinand, Coutinho, currently on loan to Bayern Munich, would improve Mourinho’s team one hundred percent.

Coutinho, a former Liverpool player, left Jurgen Klopp’s team in 2018 to join Barcelona on a £ 130m contract.

The Brazilian may be available this summer transfer window, but Ferdinand thinks Tottenham should explore to bring the 27-year-old to the Spurs.

“Coutinho was an incredible player in Liverpool, but since leaving the club he hasn’t really done it yet,” said Ferdinand in an Instagram Q&A on Monday quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“He struggled in Barcelona, struggled to integrate there, and then he didn’t do very well at Bayern.

“Getting into the Premier League on the right team would be a savior for him, he needs it.

“I would have said Man United before the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, but not now. Would it improve Spurs? Yes, he would do it 100% but not to Man United. “
