Philippe Coutinho Drops Major Hint About Barcelona Future After His Disappointing Season
Philippe Coutinho has dropped a bombshell that he could quit Barcelona this summer.
The Brazilian superstar, 27, has failed to have the same impact at the Camp Nou as he did during his time at Liverpool.
But Coutinho, who is on international duty with Brazil for the Copa América, told reporters that he was unsure about his future at the La Liga champions.
"I don't know if I will continue at Barcelona," the ex-Liverpool star said (via Marca).
"Nobody knows about the future, and right now I am focused on playing with my [national] team [at the Copa América]."
The Barcelona star made 54 appearances across all competitions last season and scored 11 times and registered five assists.
But the Barça faithful have made life tough for him in Spain and have heckled him during matches where he underperforms.
Coutinho, who has four years remaining on his current deal, has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner claimed last month that the player "probably regrets" his decision to leave Anfield.

"I would just point to the story of Philippe Coutinho," the 69-year-old American told the Liverpool Echo.
"I have only good things to say about Philippe. But I think he left Liverpool because he wanted to play for one of the two big Spanish clubs.
"We tried to convince him that we had the club moving in the right direction and that he could experience big Champions League occasions by staying at Liverpool.
"I think he probably regrets his decision."
Barcelona splashed an initial fee of £105m, which included add-ons, to secure the services of Coutinho in January last year.
The Spanish club would only sanction the sale if they could recuperate a substantial amount of the fee.
But his exit from the Camp Nou would be sped up if they are able to land PSG ace Neymar, who has been linked with a return to the club this summer.
Should Coutinho leave Barcelona in the summer?
