Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has thrown his future at the club into further ambiguity after he hinted a possible exit in the aftermath of his impressive performance against Lyon in the Champions League.

After the Lyon game on Wednesday night, Coutinho told reporters that he has not been happy with his performances for Barcelona this season before hinting that he could leave the club this summer.

Philippe Coutinho became the third most expensive player in world football after Barcelona paid £142m, including add-ons, to sign him from Premier League giants Liverpool at the start of last year.

The 26-year-old has not been able to live up to his big price tag since his transfer to Barcelona thereby leading to transfer rumours of a move back to England.

The Brazilian international has been linked with several Premier League clubs including former club Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Red Devils want to strengthen their squad this summer and Philippe Coutinho is on the list of their transfer targets.

Coutinho was back to form on Wednesday night as he found the back of the net against Lyon to lead Barcelona into the quarterfinals of this season’s Champions League.

Coutinho and Barcelona thrashed Lyon 5-1 at the Nou Camp to seal a 5-1 aggregate win.
