Philippe Coutinho's agent affirms that the playmaker has no desire to head for the Barcelona exit door despite speculation regarding a move to Juventus.

Philippe Coutinho has no desire to leave Barcelona despite persistent speculation linking him with a move elsewhere, according to the Brazilian's agent.

The former Liverpool man - who spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich - was tipped to move back to the Premier League all throughout the summer after struggling to make his mark at Camp Nou.

While a return to England failed to materialise, Coutinho has once again found himself at the centre of attention, with reports in Italy claiming that Juventus are ready to swoop for the 28-year-old.

However, Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian has poured cold water over the prospect of a move, telling Mundo Deportivo: "I have not heard anything and we have no plans to move from Barça, and yes that Coutinho can contribute to a successful season."

Despite a recent hamstring injury, Coutinho has enjoyed more first-team action at Camp Nou since Ronald Koeman took the reins, banking two goals and two assists already this season in all competitions.

The Brazil international boasts a total of 23 goals in 84 appearances since arriving in Catalonia from Liverpool in 2018, with Coutinho contracted to Barca until 2023.
