Coutinho throws his Barcelona future in doubt

Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho has thrown his future at the club in doubt after admitting that he doesn’t know where he will be next season.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a Premier League return via Chelsea and Manchester United, while Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly interested.

Asked about his future, Coutinho – on international duty with Brazil at the Copa America – told reporters: "I have a contract with Barcelona, ​​it was always my will to succeed in this club, but now I am totally concentrated here [with Brazil] and about the future [with Barca] we do not know what will happen.

"Many things that come out in the media are simply not true but as for my future we do not know what is going to happen, that is the truth."

Goals

Coutinho only managed five LaLiga goals in 34 appearances as Barca retained their crown in 2018-19, with 12 of his league outings coming from the bench.

The former Inter attacker was also targeted by Barca fans, who jeered Coutinho on several occasions last season.

Neymar has been linked with a return to Barca after leaving the Spanish giants for PSG in a world-record €222m deal in 2017, while Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann is reportedly keen on a move to Camp Nou.
