Even far from his prime, Coutinho is once again making it to the headlines of the main sports newspapers worldwide. It has already been reported in the German press that Bayern Munich will not activate the buy option for the player. The Brazilian midfielder belongs to Barcelona and is on loan until the end of the season for the German club.

Coutinho arrived at Bayern Munich at the lowest point in his career, as he chose to leave Liverpool, where he could literally have had a statue build in his honor, as German manager Jurgen Klopp said, and went to Barcelona, where he had to compete with Lionel Messi, and obviously lost.

In Catalunya, the Brazilian was humiliated. He got booed week in and week out, and that surely did some damage in his self-confidence.

The German club was the one who gave the opportunity Coutinho was looking for, especially to redeem himself, but he quickly performed under the expectations and spent some months sitting on the bench.

It’s very sad to see a situation like that, especially knowing what he’s able to do. He developed his main game skills back in his Liverpool days and had nothing else than Steven Gerrard as his “personal coach” to refine his shooting skills.

Coutinho himself has reportedly admitted that leaving the Reds was his biggest mistake, and until nowadays there are links with Liverpool, as apparently, the Brazilian and Klopp were very intimate.

As for this week, there are some reports saying that Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in counting on Coutinho for the next season. The Brazilian already said that will not go to the Red Devils as a form of showing respect to Liverpool, but does it really matter at that point?

I mean, he already hurt the fans, as he faked injuries to not to play for the Reds and closed the deal with Barcelona without even warning the Liverpool board…

But we all know that all the Liverpool fans would give him a warm welcome, as there’s a general feeling that this love story didn’t end as it should have, and the Brazilian still has to win a UEFA Champions League, right?

Jokes aside, it would be a good choice for him to go back to Liverpool, where he will meet not only that great city and supporters once again, but also, his Brazilian inmates, Roberto Firmino, Alisson, and Fabinho.
