PHILIPPE COUTINHO holds no grudge towards Tottenham over his failed transfer, according to his agent.

The Brazilian almost returned to the Premier League with Spurs last summer but a loan switch collapsed much to the anger of ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino.

It was suggested that chairman Daniel Levy pulled out of the deal over the player’s £150,000-a-week wage packet.

The 27-year-old instead joined Bayern Munich for the campaign where he has scored eight and assisted six in 22 Bundesliga appearances.

According to agent Kia Joorabchian, his move to Tottenham did not fall through over financial reasons.

Reported in the Daily Mail, he said: “Phillipe Coutinho has no personal issue with Daniel Levy and claims otherwise are totally false.

“The deal did not collapse due to financial reasons.”

Reports in Spain suggested yesterday that Coutinho will make a return to the Premier League his top priority when the transfer market opens.

Bayern will not exercise a clause in his contract to make his move permanent for £100million.

Spurs have maintained interest with boss Jose Mourinho keen to make big-name signings.

And they could even offer club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele to Barca to sweeten the deal.

Chelsea are also supposedly interested with the Blues reportedly making contact with Barca over a potential deal.
