Barcelona Make An Important Decision On Philippe Coutinho's Future After El Clásico

Philippe Coutinho's future at Barcelona has been a talking point in the footballing world for some time now.

The 26-year-old Brazil international left Liverpool in 2018 to complete a move to the Spanish club. However, many fans feel that he has failed to replicate his brilliant form at the Reds during his time with Barça.

Well, it looks like Barcelona have made a decision on the former Inter Milan player after the club's 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final.

According to Marca, the reigning La Liga champions will not rule out any offers made for the former Liverpool ace.

The Spanish newspaper reports that the club won't actively put him up for sale during the season, but that doesn't mean that they will turn a blind eye to any offers made for him.

The fact that Barcelona would be willing to sell the player could attract some clubs to snap him up in the summer.

There have been reports suggesting that Manchester United are interested in Coutinho, while Chelsea have also been linked with him as a potential replacement for Madrid target Eden Hazard.

Coutinho has made 38 appearances for Barça and scored 12 times so far, but he has come under heavy criticism from fans.

Should Barcelona sell Coutinho this summer? If so, which club should move for him?

Let us know in the comments.
