Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been long linked with a return to Premier League, meanwhile, former Blaugrana, Neymar has been linked with a return.

Catalan club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu has spoken out on the situation of both Brazilian players.

He insisted that Philippe Coutinho is not for sale and has dismissed rumors that he has held talks with Neymar over his return to Barcelona. (via Mirror)

“Are we going to consider the sale of Coutinho? No. It’s a club bet,” Bartomeu told  El Partidazo de COPE .

“He plays differently, he knows how we play, we do not want to sell Coutinho.”

“I have never spoken to them, nor have the father or player called me to return to Barca. They have not called,” continued Bartomeu on Neymar

“We are preparing for next season and the name of Neymar is not on the table.

“We are talking about a PSG player and I do not think that PSG want to get rid of a player like him.”
