Philippe Coutinho Comments On FC Barcelona Future Amid Manchester

Philippe Coutinho Comments On FC Barcelona Future Amid Manchester

He said: "First and foremost, I'd say we're very keen, a mix of experience and young players, that we come out with a lot of desire, with that pride of wearing the Manchester United shirt, a team that never gives up".

"Playing at Old Trafford is one of the best feelings a footballer can have".

In the wake of being linked with moves to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho has broken his silence on growing speculation regarding his future with the LaLiga giants.

When they sold the player, they told us what the offer would have to be and we couldn't afford that amount of money at the time.

Apart from scraping through against Watford, United have succumbed to defeats by Arsenal and Wolves twice in what has not been good preparation for their up and coming Champions League game.

Manchester United face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

Speaking to the Mirror , the 26-year-old said: "My head is exclusively in Barcelona".

"And, even more than that, it is an incentive to play better and to be even more focused".

"I have that nailed in my memory and, even though this is a different stage, if Barcelona knock United out of Europe, it will be a double personal satisfaction for me".

"I'm glad that Liverpool are doing well this year. Returning to England now does not fit into my plans". Jurgen Klopp is a great coach and it was only a matter of time before he got the team performing the way they are. Since that season, the Catalans have been forced to watch arch-rivals win the prestigious tournament three times in a row, while they have exited at the quarter-finals each time. Everyone wants to win this tie, not just me.
