The former Liverpool star has returned to FC Barcelona following the end of his loan spell with Bayern Munich, but there was still a lot of speculation regarding his future.

Coutinho struggled to settle in at the Camp Nou following his big-money move from Anfield in 2018, but his name was thrust into the spotlight after he scored twice against the Blaugrana in their 8-2 loss to Bayern in the UEFA Champions League last month.

The attacking midfielder would go on to earn a winner's medal with the Bavarians after they beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final of the competition, and his agent, Kia Joorabchian, has now revealed that he will be staying at Barcelona.

The Daily Mail has quoted Joorabchian as saying: "(Barca boss Ronald) Koeman called him right after the Champions League victory with Bayern, the following day, and told him he's very much in his plans and would like him to return.

"He was due to return on 7 September but actually he returned at the beginning of September because he didn't want to lose his momentum and fitness, and he's been training with Barcelona.

"All signs point to the fact Barcelona have changed quite dramatically, the way their philosophy of how they wanted to move forward from last year and the players they've brought in, like Coutinho, (Ousmane) Dembele and (Antoine) Griezmann, they're all going to be part of the squad this year."
