LaLiga: Barcelona take decision over Coutinho’s future amid interest from Man Utd, Chelsea


Barcelona senior officials are ready to give Philippe Coutinho a chance to prove his worth at the club, Goal reports.

The Brazilian swapped Liverpool for Spain in January 2018.

Although, he made an initial good impression with his performances in his debut season, however, Coutinho has found the 2018/2019 season to be difficult.

The playmaker has struggled to reproduce his best form and has fallen in and out of the first team in rotation with Ousmane Dembele.

That lack of playing time had led to rumours that Barca would be willing to listen to offers in the coming transfer window, with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain interested

But a recent upsurge in form ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg, has helped convince those in charge that his services should be retained for next season.
