Philippe Coutinho has removed any mention of Barcelona in his Instagram bio amid intense Liverpool speculation.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder continues to be linked with a move away from Barcelona, and his agent Kia Joorabchian revealed that the player would find it difficult to go to one of Liverpool's Premier League rivals.
"I think Liverpool lies very, very deeply in his heart, he was a big fan of them throughout the campaign [last season]," he said.
"He was wishing for them to win the title and he has a very strong affinity there so I think it will be very difficult for him to go to a direct competitor of Liverpool from a personal standpoint."
The Brazilian has struggled at Barcelona following his big-money switch in January 2017.
His days in Spain appear to be numbered with Liverpool reportedly keen on resigning him ahead of the new season.
Reports in Italy claim that Coutinho has given his approval to a stunning offer from Liverpool to take him back on a two-year loan with the option to buy for £88 million.
