Coutinho: Barcelona? I just want to play…

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho could not shut the door on moving to Barcelona next month after last night’s Champions League triumph.

The 25-year-old midfielder hit a hat-trick in their 7-0 rout of Spartak Moscow.

Speaking with Esporte Interativo: “My will is to play … wherever I am.

“I had an offer to leave this summer, for which one is interested or not, but it was something that has since already happened.”

With Liverpool into the last 16, it’s suggested Barca are now pulling back from plans to sign the Brazil international in January.
