Coutinho put in another rubbish performance last night for Barcelona, who drew 0-0 with Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.
According to Marca, the Spanish giants are now considering whether they should cash in on the 26-year-old this summer and cut their losses – having signed the Brazilian for £142m from Liverpool in January 2018.
This term, he’s underperformed for the Catalans, and is no longer an automatic starter for Ernesto Valverde.
Many Barca fans took to Twitter to criticise Coutinho, who has simply not lived up to the levels expected of him since the switch he so desperately wanted.
As a Liverpool fan, we’re not sure how we’d feel about Phil potentially heading back to the Premier League and joining one of our rivals…
Football365 say the latest news gives Chelsea and Manchester United ‘hope’ about securing the playmaker in the next transfer window – but we’re sure Coutinho would only sign for onr of those sides if Liverpool were not in the running.
To be honest, it’s not really our problem anymore. Coutinho’s sale helped Liverpool, who gained Virgil van Dijk and Alisson with the money generated from his exit.
His plight shouldn’t bring us joy, or any success, heartache. It doesn’t matter anymore. We just have to focus on our journey under Jurgen Klopp and the players who want to be part of it.
Coutinho playing like he’s a 18 year old kid featuring for the first time in a second division match in Brazil… Again.

Don't think any quote sums up Phillipe Coutinho's situation at Barcelona better than Warren Buffett when he said, "Price is what you pay. Value is what you get."
