Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho will not make a decision on his future until Bayern Munich's 2019-20 campaign has ended, according to a report.

Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho will reportedly make a decision on his future once Bayern Munich's 2019-20 campaign has officially come to a close.

The Brazil international has spent the current season with Bayern and will be with the German champions until their participation in the Champions League is over.

Coutinho is allegedly surplus to requirements at Barca, with the Spanish champions thought to be keen to sell him in order to raise funds to bring Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez to Camp Nou.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the South American is currently fully focused on Bayern, meaning that he has put all talk of his future on hold until August.

The Bundesliga giants are on course to make the quarter-finals of the Champions League as they have a 3-0 advantage over Chelsea after the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have all previously been linked with the 28-year-old, who has scored nine times and contributed eight assists in 34 appearances for Der FCB this term.
