Al Duhail closing in on loan deal for Philippe Coutinho

Al Duhail is close to sign Aston Villa’s midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Qatari football club Al Duhail appears to be on the verge of securing the services of Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho from Aston Villa. This is shocking, as Coutinho’s move to Al Duhail would mark a significant shift in his career further.

Coutinho, who had previously given his time at prestigious clubs like Liverpool, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich, joined Aston Villa in a surprise move in the summer of 2021. His arrival at Villa Park was met with great anticipation, as fans hoped he could ignite the form that had made him one of the world’s most sought-after midfielders.

However, it seems that Coutinho’s time in the English Premier League might be coming to an end. Reports suggest that Al Duhail, a club based in Qatar, has been in advanced talks with Aston Villa to secure the Brazilian’s signature. The move would see Coutinho trade the English top-flight for the Qatari Stars League, a decision that has raised eyebrows among football enthusiasts.

While the complete details of the transfer are still being negotiated, it’s clear that Al Duhail’s interest in Coutinho signifies their ambition to compete on a global stage.
