Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refuses to comment on speculation linking Manchester United with a move for Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to comment on transfer links with Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho.

The ex-Liverpool midfielder has struggled to make an impact at Camp Nou and has been touted as a possible summer target for the Red Devils.

Coutinho has a combined 15 goals and assists in all competitions this term, but he has failed to make the most of his regular opportunities since Ousmane Dembele was ruled out with an injury.

Ahead of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg with Barcelona, which the Catalan club lead 1-0 from last week's meeting at Old Trafford, Solskjaer shut down a journalist's question regarding the Brazilian's future.

"He's a Barcelona player. He's a Barcelona player," Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference, before moving on to another question.

Coutinho is expected to start the second leg against United, with Dembele still not back to full fitness.
