Bayern Munich loanee Philippe Coutinho has opened up about his plans for the future, and dropped a massive hint that it could lie away from parent club FC Barcelona.
Coutinho joined the Bavarians' on loan at the beginning of the campaign after falling out of favour under manager Ernesto Valverde at Barca.
The Brazil international, who has since recorded three goals and three assists in 12 league appearances for Bundesliga giants, recently admitted that he would like to extend his stay at the German club.
"I feel really good," Coutinho said, according to AS.
"I'm planning to stay here (Munich) for a year and focus on the here and now. But if it all hangs together, I'd love to stay."
The former Liverpool star also reserved praise for interim Bayern manager Hans-Dieter Flick, who has stepped into the hot seat following Niko Kovac's dismissal last month.
"We've understood well how his way of coaching and playing," the 27-year-old added.
"Things are going well because of that. Flick makes everyone feel important.
"We're happy, but aware there's a lot of work to do."
Coutinho scored 21 goals in 76 appearances during his first 18 months at the Camp Nou, after arriving at the club from the Reds for a reported fee in excess of £105 million (R1.9 billion).
