Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has demanded that Philippe Coutinho isn’t available to be purchased and has poured virus water on Neymar’s potential come back to the Nou Camp.
Brazilian forward Coutinho has attempted to make himself an ordinary at Barca since moving from Liverpool for £142 million last January.
In his 13 months at the La Liga champions, Coutinho has just overseen 29 begins in the association to start bits of gossip his time at the club could be arriving at an end.
An arrival to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds had been mooted alongside a change to Manchester United .
Be that as it may, Bartomeu has completely rejected the possibility of Coutinho leaving this late spring.
“Is it accurate to say that we will consider the clearance of Coutinho? No. It’s a club wagered,” Bartomeu told El Partidazo de COPE.
“He plays in an unexpected way, he knows how we play, we would prefer not to move Coutinho.”
Bartomeu likewise addressed inquiries concerning a potential Neymar gathering at Barca.
The Paris Saint-Germain hotshot discarded Barca for the French capital in a world record £195m yet has always been connected with an arrival.
Yet, in spite of being available to inviting Neymar back, Bartomeu concedes an arrangement would be impossible and no contact has been made between the club and the player.
“I have never addressed them, nor have the dad or player called me to come back to Barca. They have not called,” Bartomeu said.
“We are getting ready for next season and the name of Neymar isn’t on the table.
“We are discussing a PSG player and I don’t feel that PSG need to dispose of a player like him.”
