Barcelona are prepared to part ways with Philippe Coutinho on a permanent basis this summer amid the reported interest from Chelsea.

The Brazilian has failed to live up to his expectations since leaving Liverpool in January 2018 and he is currently on loan at Bayern Munich.

Coutinho has registered eight goals and six assists in the Bundesliga this term but the German side are still reluctant to sign him on a long-term deal.

According to Sport, the 27-year-old will return to the Camp Nou during the summer and the club will thereafter consider his sale to another club.

Frank Lampard’s side are keen on an initial loan move for Coutinho but reports indicate that the Blaugrana prefer his permanent exit for around £65m.
