Real Madrid eye Reds ace

Real Madrid are once again being linked with a move for Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho, despite the Spaniard's transfer ban.

Reports in Spain claim Real President Florentino Perez has a list of potential transfer targets which he believes would aid Zinadine Zidane's quest for the La Liga title, the Spanish giants having not won the Spanish crown for four years, and Coutinho is said to be a target.

The Brazilian has been in outstanding form for the Reds this season and Jurgen Klopp has no intention of selling the former Inter Milan star as he plots an assault on the Premier League title.

On top of that, Real Madrid are currently under a transfer ban which does not allow them to sign or register players, due to an ongoing investigation into the club’s youth transfer policies.

They are appealing the embargo though and Spanish reports claim if they win they will set out on the trail of the diminutive Brazilian.
