Coutinho rules out Premier League return

Philippe Coutinho insists he is happy at Barcelona and is not ready to return to the Premier League amid speculation over his future.

The Brazil star signed for Barca from Liverpool in a £146 million deal in January 2018 but has failed to produce his best form in La Liga, only scoring five times in 29 league appearances this term.

Coutinho has failed to nail down a regular starting berth and has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea as a result but, with the Catalan giants set to face United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, Coutinho says he has unfinished business at Barca.

Speaking to the Mirror , the 26-year-old said: “My head is exclusively in Barcelona. Returning to England now does not fit into my plans.

“This is my second season here. I have won titles but I am always an ambitious and demanding player. So, I want more and more.

“But I’m happy. I wanted to play in Spain and I’m at the best club in Spain.”
