Barcelona Midfielder Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona Midfielder Philippe Coutinho has hinted on a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, after admitting he wants to play with Neymar.

Manchester United have been heavily rumoured with a move for the Barcelona midfielder, but it appears Coutinho would prefer PSG, in order to be with his Brazil teammate.

“It's always a pleasure to play with him, it's a crack. We played a lot of time in Brazilian youth teams, [Neymar] became a special player, Coutinho told Calcio Mercato.

“Playing at his side is always a pleasure, even though I haven't had any luck at the club level yet. It would be nice to play with him in a club.”

The 26-year-old only moved to Spain just over a year ago in a £142 million deal from Liverpool, after Neymar left Barcelona just six months previously.

Even with a great start to life in Barcelona, Coutinho has become more and more frustrated with his lack of playing time at the Catalan club.

He recently hit back at his critics by making a controversial gesture towards the crowd after scoring against United.

Coutinho placed his fingers in his ears to symbolise that he wasn't listening to the criticism, and has now revealed who he was aiming his celebration at.
