Coutinho to Manchester United: Barcelona to consider offers

The Brazilian is unhappy at PSG and wants to leave

Antoine Griezmann proved to be Atletico Madrid's decisive figure yet again as the Frenchman struck the only goal in a 1-0 win at home to Levante on Sunday which kept Diego Simeone's side in touch with La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Rumors of Coutinho leaving Barcelona have been widespread in recent days in response to him starting several league matches on the bench.

However, Coutinho's penalty didn't stop him from being the target of much of the post-game criticism following an apathetic display in which virtually nothing worked out for the Brazilian. However, he seems to be struggling at the club and has not started in the last four league games. Eibar just couldn't deal with with Suarez and that ultimately told. Ceballos, who left Betis for Madrid two years ago, was one of them. Replacing him won't be easy either.

Eibar - Riesgo 7, Pena 5, Bigas 5, Arbilla 6, Cote 5, Escalante 6, Diop 6, Orellana 6, Cucurella 7, Jordan 5, Sergi 7.

Barcelona opened the scoring in the 19th minute.

OnLeaks also backs up earlier rumours that Apple will launch three iPhones this year; successors to the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. The smartphones could be revealed by Apple in September, when it regularly shows off its latest new models.

Their displays have meant that Coutinho has been unable to nail down a position either in midfield or as part of the front three.

At 31, the Barcelona captain is unlikely to make 500 goals but it is far from unreachable.

Coutinho also played a role in Messi's goal in the 53rd, passing the ball to Suarez, who then found Messi, who cut around a defender and fired in a low, left-footed strike. Real remain 10 points adrift of Barcelona. Messi's impact on La Liga isn't just notable for this goal-scoring impact, but the manner in which he scores the goals.

Luis Suarez had given Barca the lead with their only shot on target in the first half, and he doubled his tally six minutes after Messi's moment in the spotlight with a composed finish from a tight angle.

Barca nearly doubled the lead when Sergi Roberto headed wide and Coutinho was denied a penalty following a Pena challenge, but it was not until after the break that they turned on the style.
