Reports: Coutinho could stay at Barcelona this summer

Barcelona are apparently willing to keep Philippe Coutinho this summer, with head coach Ronald Koeman stating that he is "glad to count on him" next season.

The Brazil international is still being linked with a move away from Camp Nou ahead of the 2021-22 season, after recuperating from knee surgery.

Leicester City, AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Marseille are all rumored to be interested in the playmaker, who has two years left on his Barcelona deal.

According to ESPN, Barcelona would not allow the South American to depart for free this summer and will not permit a loan until a significant portion of his contract is covered.

According to the article, Coutinho could be given another shot at Barcelona, despite the fact that he is one of the highest-paid players at a financially troubled team.

Due to injuries, the 29-year-old only made 14 appearances last season, but he is working his way back to full fitness ahead of the new season.
