Kia Joorabichan dismisses Philippe Coutinho to PSG link

Philippe Coutinho's agent has rubbished claims that his client is set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.

Kia Joorabichan has dismissed any potential suggestion that he is brokering a deal to bring the Brazilian international to the Ligue 1 champions, as part of a player exchange deal with Neymar returnign to the Camp Nou.

"I am not in Paris, I am in London, he told an interview with Mundo Deportivo.

"Reports of me being in Paris discussing Coutinho with PSG are simply false."

Despite Joorabichan's claims that a deal involving his client are untrue, reports in Diario AS claim that FC Barcelona remain interested in bringing the 28-year old back to Catalonia - despite reported interest from Real Madrid.

The issue for Ernesto Valverde's side remains their unwillingness to meet PSG's €200m asking price, after a summer of spending on Antoine Griezmann and Fernkie De Jong, preferring instead to offer a player-plus-cash deal.
