Philippe Coutinho, who has been linked with a move to Aston Villa, has ‘decided on his future’ and will ‘announce his decision today.’

Following talks with Aston Villa, PHILIPPE COUTINHO is said to have made a decision about his future.

According to reports, Philippe Coutinho has decided on his future and will make an announcement on Friday.

The Brazilian playmaker, dubbed ‘The Magician’ during his time at Liverpool, is reportedly considering a return to the Premier League with Aston Villa.

On Wednesday, talks between the Midlands club and Barcelona reached a head when Villa expressed interest in a loan move.

Barcelona is eager to get Coutinho off the payroll as the Catalan club looks to cut costs after spending £142 million on the attacker in January 2018.

Coutinho is set to go down in history as one of the worst signings of all time after failing to live up to expectations at Barcelona despite winning two La Liga titles.

Nonetheless, his ability is undeniable, and Coutinho’s former teammate Steven Gerrard is eager to assist him in resurrecting his career.

The plan is to make the creative samba star the focal point of his Villa side, with an initial loan being considered.

Coutinho’s contract with Barcelona expires after 18 months, so Barcelona is pushing for an 18-month loan.

Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal, and Newcastle are among the Premier League clubs that have been linked with the position.

Coutinho, according to Sky Sports, has made up his mind and will announce his decision on Friday.

Coutinho would be’more than happy’ to join Villa Park, according to reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

Coutinho is also rumored to want to return to Liverpool, though the Reds are unlikely to make the move.

Gerrard is said to have called his friend and stated unequivocally that the Villa team will be built around his strengths.

On Thursday, the Villa manager refused to be drawn into speculation about a possible Coutinho transfer, but he made it clear that he still holds the player in high regard.

“I can see why a lot of supporters are upset.
