Philippe Coutinho

The Barcelona future of playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been sealed according to the latest reports coming out of the media in Spain.

Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the former Liverpool player won’t leave the Spanish La Liga club this summer after the Catalans didn’t receive any offers for him.

Major European clubs like Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and former club Liverpool were all credited with an interest for Philippe Coutinho.

Recent reports had claimed that Barcelona offered €100m plus Coutinho for PSG attacker Neymar who’s keen to return to the Nou Camp after two years in France.

Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona at the start of last year in a controversial manner and the Brazilian has not been able to establish himself as a key member of the team at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona signed him in a deal reported to be around £142m thus making the Brazilian player the third most expensive player in the history of world football.

Philippe Coutinho was part of the Brazil team that won the 2019 COPA America tournament on home soil earlier this summer.

Brazil won the tournament via a 3-1 win over surprise finalists Peru.
