Barcelona have resolved to sell Philippe Coutinho this summer, a report has said.
According to The Mirror, the club are also opened to accepting a loan move for the out-of-favour midfielder.
The Brazilian has struggled to live up to expectations at the club since arriving from Liverpool for a club record fee of £142 million in January 2018.
The report also added that the player is not happy at the club due to fans’ criticisms and boos.
Spanish Daily Sport also said that the club believe they can sell the player before the transfer window closes within the range of their valuation of the player.
The publication added that Barcelona have accepted that they may not be able to make profit on the former Inter Milan player, but are convinced they won’t lose too much money either.
The La Liga champions are also willing to loan Coutinho this summer if a permanent deal does not come, then sell him next season.
The Catalans have also reportedly made their stance clear that the player will not be used in any exchange deal, which has been touted in their negotiation with Paris Saint-Germain for the possibility of a Neymar return to Spain.
Sport has also claimed that the club have received an official offer from an unnamed club, and the player is now weighing up his options.
While PSG have pulled out of the race to sign the Brazil star, Manchester United and City are allegedly said to remain interested.
The player would prefer a return to the Premier League, and has already made clear his intention to remain in Europe, ruling out a big-money switch to China or Japan.
Coutinho made 54 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions last season, 18 of which were made from the bench, scoring 11 goals and providing five assists.
His chances of a first team football has also been seriously dampened by the arrival of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.
