Philippe Coutinho has been the subject of transfer speculation linking him with a host of Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea. In a recent interview to the Mirror, the Barcelona attacker has rubbished those transfer speculation by claiming he is happy at Spain and a return to the Premier League doesn’t fit his plans.
Barcelona paid Liverpool £142 million to bring Philippe Coutinho to Nou Camp but after initially offering him a midfield role, manager Ernesto Valverde has shifted him to the wings and often rotates him. Despite that, the Brazilian wants to stay at the Catalan club and establish himself.
“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.”Coutinho told the Sunday Mirror
