Philippe Coutinho will not be allowed to leave the Nou Camp this summer, according to the Mirror.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move away from the Catalan giants just 18 months after joining from Liverpool.

Manchester United were reportedly keen on bringing him back to England, though the player himself appears to have cooled that speculation personally.

Liverpool were also linked with a move, but Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu insisted recently that Coutinho will be going nowhere in the summer.

“Coutinho is a great player, excellent, and he’s getting better and better,” Bartomeu said.

“It’s not easy to play at Barca, he was here for six months last season and he has the confidence of the coach, he’s a global player and we expect a lot from him.

“He will continue at Barca, it’s different and Barca needs different players.”
