Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho reportedly rules out a January move to Manchester United, but may reconsider his future during the summer.

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho reportedly has no intention of leaving the club during the January transfer window.

Recent speculation has claimed that Manchester United are interested in the Brazilian playmaker and have made contact with his agent to discuss his availability.

Coutinho only joined Barcelona from United's bitter rivals Liverpool a year ago, but he has struggled to rediscover his best form at Camp Nou, particularly this season.

Reports have suggested that the Barca hierarchy are willing to cash in on Coutinho in order to help fund a return for Neymar, but Mundo Deportivo claims that Coutinho will not leave the club this month.

The 26-year-old is, however, understood to be unhappy with his current situation at Barcelona and may reconsider his future in the summer should things not improve under manager Ernesto Valverde.

Coutinho has scored six goals in 24 appearances for Barcelona so far this season, but has only started nine La Liga games in 2018-19.
