Philippe Coutinho set for Barca stay - Agent claims

Share This
Philippe Coutinho is yet to settle at Barcelona since he joined for a fee of around 140m pounds from Liverpool two years ago.
The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich where he won the treble with the Bavarians.

The dormer Liverpool star also came on board late in the game against his parent club, Barcelona during the quarter final clash in Champions League.

Coutinho was introduced by Hansi Flick,and he scored twice and created an assist as Bayern Munich humiliated Barcelona 8-2.

It's been reported that the Brazilian has returned to Barcelona after he ended his loan deal with Bayern Munich.

Coutinho agent has cleared rumours that the Brazilian will leave Camp Nou the summer.

When he was quizzed by talkSPORT on whether he expects Coutinho to stay put and shun the interest being shown in him from afar, Joorabchian said: “Yeah.

“Koeman called him right after the Champions League victory with Bayern, the following day, and told him he’s very much in his plans and would like him to return."

It's been gathered that Coutinho cut short his holiday to return to training after he met new Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman.

Koeman has express interest in keeping Coutinho as he hopes to build the confidence of the play maker.

His agent added: “He was due to return on September 7 but actually he returned at the beginning of September because he didn’t want to lose his momentum and fitness, and he’s been training with Barcelona.

“All signs point to the fact Barcelona have changed quite dramatically, the way their philosophy of how they wanted to move forward from last year and the players they’ve brought in, like Coutinho, [Ousmane] Dembele and [Antoine] Griezmann they’re all going to be part of the squad this year.”

Coutinho is tied to a contract at Barcelona through to the summer of 2023.
