The Brazil international joined the Blaugrana from Liverpool in January 2018, signing a five and a half year deal in a transfer worth a staggering £142 million (R2.2 billion).

However, the former Inter Milan star has failed to make the desired impact at the Camp Nou thus far, and is said to be the subject of reported interest from a host of big-name clubs in Europe, further fuelling speculation he could be poised for an early exit from the LaLiga giants.

Despite often finding himself on the bench at Barca this season, the 26-year-old has now insisted he has no intention of leaving the five-time UEFA Champions League winners.

"This is my second season here. I have won titles but I am always an ambitious and demanding player. So, I want more and more. But I'm happy," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.

"I wanted to play in Spain and I'm at the best club in Spain. My head is exclusively in Barcelona.

"Returning to England now does not fit into my plans."

Coutinho has made 44 appearances across all competitions for Barca this season, finding the back of the net on 10 occasions registering a further five assists.
