Philippe Coutinho’s representative verifies that the playmaker has no desire to head for the Barcelona exit door regardless of speculation relating to a move to Juventus.
Philippe Coutinho has no desire to leave Barcelona regardless of consistent speculation linking him with a move somewhere else, according to the Brazilian’s representative.
The former Liverpool man – who invested last season on loan at Bayern Munich – was tipped to move back to the Premier League all throughout the summer after having a hard time to make his mark at Camp Nou.
While a return to England failed to materialise, Coutinho has when again discovered himself at the centre of attention, with reports in Italy declaring that Juventus are ready to swoop for the 28-year-old.
Nevertheless, Coutinho’s representative Kia Joorabchian has put cold water over the possibility of a move, informing Mundo Deportivo: “I have not heard anything and we have no plans to move from Barça, and yes that Coutinho can contribute to a successful season.”
In Spite Of a recent hamstring injury, Coutinho has delighted in more first-team action at Camp Nou since Ronald Koeman took the reins, banking 2 goals and 2 assists already this season in all competitions.
The Brazil international boasts an overall of 23 goals in 84 appearances since showing up in Catalonia from Liverpool in 2018, with Coutinho contracted to Barca till 2023.
