Coutinho: I am not looking for Premier League return

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has told UK newspaper the Daily Mirror that a return to the English top flight is not in his plans.

The Brazilian international moved from Liverpool to Catalonia in Janaury 2018 for a fee of £158m, however he has not established himself as a first team regular under Ernesto Valverde.

That has led to recent speculation linking him with a return to England, with Manchester United reported to be interested in him, however the former Inter Milan star is committed to La Blaugrana.

"This is my second season with Barcleona.

"I have won titles and I want more and more.

"I wanted to play football in Spain and I am playing for the best football clubn in Spain.

"At the moment I am only focused on Barcelona and returning to England is not in my plans."
