Barcelona send message to Man United, Chelsea over Coutinho

The Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has informed Manchester United and Chelsea that the club is not going to sell Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January 2017 in a £142million move from Liverpool, is already being linked with a departure from the Nou Camp.

The Brazilian forward has already won three titles at Barca but has endured frustrating season, scoring four La Liga goals and eight in a competition.

Premier League giants, Man United and Chelsea have reportedly expressed interests in bringing back Coutinho to England.

“We expect a lot from him [Coutinho],” Bartomeu told Marca.

“We do not want to sell him, he’s one of the good players we want to have.”
