Philippe Coutinho says he’s happy at Barcelona and has no interest in returning to the Premier League amid speculation over his future.

The Brazilian has endured a tough first full season at the Camp Nou but has played down rumours he could be on the move in the summer.

“My head is exclusively in Barcelona. Returning to England now does not fit into my plans,” he said.

”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 has enjoyed some prolonged game time while Ousmane Dembele has been out injured and will be hoping to start again on Wednesday against Manchester United.

However, Dembele could be back in time to play some part in that game, while Malcom is also an option after some impressive performances recently.
