Barcelona manager Quique Setien has said he likes Philippe Coutinho and has suggested his career at the Camp Nou may not be over yet.

The Brazilian has spent the season on loan at Bayern Munich and has been tipped to leave Barcelona again in the summer transfer window.

However, Setien has been asked about the Brazilian in an interview with RAC1 and suggested he may give him a second chance at the Camp Nou.

“I really like him. He is a player who in principle, is from Barça, either the clause should be paid or the transfer paid.

“I am counting on him being here to start the season. I don’t know if he wants to return or leave, I’ll talk to him when the time comes.

Coutinho is being regularly linked with a move to the Premier League, although his big price tag means a loan is more likely than a permanent deal.
