The Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has informed Manchester United and Chelsea that the club is not going to sell Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January 2017 in a £142million move from Liverpool, is already being linked with a departure from the Nou Camp.

The Brazilian forward has already won three titles at Barca but has endured frustrating season, scoring four La Liga goals and eight in a competition.

Premier League giants, Man United and Chelsea have reportedly expressed interests in bringing back Coutinho to England.

“We expect a lot from him [Coutinho],” Bartomeu told Marca.

“We do not want to sell him, he’s one of the good players we want to have.”
