Barcelona may reportedly fund a summer move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar by selling playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Barcelona have reportedly started to consider the sale of Philippe Coutinho as they look for a way to re-sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Catalan giants sold Neymar to the Ligue 1 outfit for a world-record fee during the summer of 2017, and some of the funds generated were used to bring in Coutinho from Liverpool.

However, Coutinho is currently out of the starting lineup, and according to the London Evening Standard, that has resulted in the playmaker's future at Camp Nou being left in doubt.

Barcelona have been frequently linked with a reunion with Neymar - who has openly stated that he misses his former teammates at the club - but the La Liga giants would need to sell before they can contemplate a big-money approach.

Coutinho has scored 15 goals in 45 appearances during his time at Barcelona, but Manchester United were credited with an interest in the 26-year-old earlier this month.
