Barcelona are reportedly still keen to sell Brazilian attacker Philippe Coutinho this summer.

Barcelona are reportedly still keen to sell Philippe Coutinho during this summer's transfer window.

The Brazil international is currently on loan at German champions Bayern Munich but is due to return to Camp Nou at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Barca boss Quique Setien recently suggested that the 27-year-old would be part of his plans for next season, branding the playmaker "a great player".

However, according to Goal, the Spanish champions remain keen on a summer sale in order to fund moves for the likes of Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar and Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez.

The report claims that 'the decision makers' at the Catalan outfit are still planning to place Coutinho on the transfer market despite Setien's recent comments.

Manchester United and Chelsea both continue to be linked with the South American, who has struggled to perform for Barca since joining the club from Liverpool in January 2018.
