Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho won’t leave the club when the transfer window reopens this summer according to club president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
In his recent interview monitored by popular media platform Goal, Bartomeu revealed that the former Liverpool playmaker will stay at Barcelona beyond this summer.
Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a return to the Premier League having failed to light up the Spanish La Liga following his expensive move to Barcelona at the start of last year.
The Brazilian international player signed for the Catalan giants in January 2018 to become the third most expensive player in world football.
Spanish champions Barcelona signed Coutinho from Merseyside giants Liverpool and they paid around £142m.
Recent reports have linked Philippe Coutinho to major Premier League sides like Chelsea and Manchester United.
The Brazilian player has also been touted as a transfer addition for French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
Coutinho was reportedly linked with a move back to Liverpool but those transfer rumours are wide off the mark with the Reds not keen to welcome back a prodigal son.
The former Inter Milan star forced through a move to Barcelona from Liverpool in the middle of last season and his transfer fee has been spent wisely on the team with the purchase of players like Virgil Van Dijk and Alisson Becker.
