Coutinho wants to play with Neymar

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has fuelled the transfer talk surrounding both him and fellow Brazilian Neymar with an admission on his future plans.

After a little over a year at Camp Nou, 26-year-old playmaker Coutinho is already sparking exit speculation.

A return to the Premier League has been mooted for the former Liverpool star, with Manchester United and Chelsea said to be among his suitors.

A switch could happen at some stage, though, with Coutinho revealing that he is hoping to one day turn out alongside Neymar at club level.

He has told De Sola: “It’s always a pleasure to play with him, it’s a crack. We played a lot of time in Brazilian youth teams, [Neymar] became a special player.

“Playing at his side is always a pleasure, even though I haven’t had any luck at the club level yet. It would be nice to play with him in a club.”
