Coutinho admits he might leave Barcelona amid strong interest from Manchester United

Phillipe Coutinho has admitted he might not be playing at Barcelona next season amid transfer rumours linking him to the English Premier League. 

The former Liverpool star has found the going tough at the Catalonia club, and failed to settle in despite his obvious talent, and was booed on numerous occasions by fans at the club. 

Speaking while on duty with the national team at the Copa America tournament, the attacker failed short of assuring fans that he will still remain at the club. 

“I don’t know if I will continue at Barcelona, nobody knows about the future, and right now I am focused on playing with my [national] team [at the Copa America],” admitted Coutinho

It’s understood that Manchester United have a strong interest to take him back to England, where he flourished for the Reds before leaving 18 months ago. 

Barcelona will be keen on recouping much of the £144 million they paid for him but might be forced to take a considerable cut having seen his value nosedive significantly. 

Chelsea are said to be interested in his services as well, but the UEFA ban might end their hopes of landing the midfielder.
