A report claims that Philippe Coutinho has no intention of leaving Barcelona in the summer, despite the Spanish champions supposedly wanting to offload him.

Philippe Coutinho is reportedly determined to prove his critics wrong by fighting for his place at Barcelona.

The 26-year-old's Camp Nou future is said to be in doubt after just 13 months at the club following a number of sub-par displays, most recently in the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Speculation coming out of Spain suggests that Barca are now willing to listen to offers for the Brazilian playmaker, who has scored four goals in 20 La Liga appearances this season.

However, the Daily Mail claims that the rumoured Chelsea and Manchester United target is not ready to give up on making it at Barcelona, even though he concedes that performances must improve.

Coutinho, who set Barca back £142m to sign from Liverpool in January 2017, is in contention to feature against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday as Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi are fitness doubts.
