“It’s a dream come true to come back to Anfield. I would love to win more with this club” – Philippe Coutinho is poised for an emotional return as Liverpool’s owners, FSG, are reportedly ‘plotting’ a deal for This is amazing news 😱👏 97% of Liverpool fans are celebrating this news 😱❤️

Philippe Coutinho appears to be on the verge of departing Aston Villa.


The Brazilian midfielder is rumored to be considering a return to his former club during the summer transfer window. Coutinho’s career has been turbulent since his £142 million transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona in January 2018.


Liverpool utilized the substantial funds from Coutinho’s sale to acquire Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, and Fabinho, which significantly contributed to their Champions League and Premier League triumphs.


In contrast, Coutinho struggled to find his footing at Barcelona and even spent a period on loan at Bayern Munich.


He moved to Aston Villa to work again with Steven Gerrard, his former Liverpool teammate who was managing the club. Despite this reunion, Coutinho failed to recapture his previous form and ended up spending the 2023-24 season on loan at Al-Duhail.


With two years remaining on his contract, Coutinho is now considered non-essential at Villa Park.


Reports indicate that Villa might terminate his contract, enabling him to return to Brazil and rejoin Vasco da Gama, where he started his career and played 31 games.


Brazilian outlet Trivela reports that Coutinho has already reached an agreement, which hinges on the termination of his contract with Villa.


Additionally, it has been reported that Coutinho has been in Rio de Janeiro since last Friday, although Aston Villa is hesitant after investing £17 million in him.


Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has been linked with a potential purchase of Vasco da Gama, which is currently placed 13th in the Brazilian top league.


777 Partners, who own a majority stake in Vasco, have recently had their control suspended by a judge due to ongoing legal and financial troubles.


With FSG aiming to broaden their sports portfolio and having recently reinstated former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards as their CEO of football, they could be interested in acquiring Vasco.
