Barcelona are prepared to listen to offers for Philippe Coutinho following his disappointing performance against Real Madrid, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly losing patience with Philippe Coutinho following his latest below-par performance against Real Madrid.

The Brazilian playmaker has been constantly linked with a move away from Camp Nou of late, despite only arriving from Liverpool in a £142m transfer 13 months ago.

Coutinho has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in his preferred position, but he appeared to have turned a corner with his impressive display in the 6-1 Copa del Rey win over Sevilla last month.

However, the 26-year-old offered little attacking threat in the 2-2 draw with Valencia and was taken off after an hour in the 1-1 draw with Madrid in midweek.

Having scored just four goals in 20 La Liga appearances this term, Marca suggests that Barca chiefs are now convinced that they should listen to offers for Coutinho in the summer.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been tipped to make a move for the ex-Liverpool ace, but the Catalan giants are said to be holding out for a nine-figure sum.
