Thomas Muller to Replace Philippe Coutinho? What Could Have Been For Liverpool

Liverpool could have sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona had Thomas Muller agreed a move to Anfield, according to Bild.

The Brazilian playmaker was at the centre of one of the summer’s biggest transfer stories as the Spanish giants attempted to make a move for him.

The speculation around that led Coutinho to miss the start of the season over worries about his attitude, but no deal materialised and he has since been integrated back into the first team set-up under Jurgen Klopp.

Yet a report today says Liverpool would have sold Coutinho had Bayern Munich attacker Muller agreed on a move to Anfield in the summer.

That’s according to Bild’s Christian Falk:

Muller has been a big player for Bayern in the past, but he’s been less influential over recent years – only netting nine times in all competitions last season.

Would Muller have been a good replacement for Coutinho? We’re not so sure. There’s no doubting the German’s quality and he’s contributed to a lot of success for his club and country throughout his career, but does he match up to Coutinho in terms of talent?
