Barcelona are looking to sell a host of players after exceeding La Liga’s wage limit. It has resulted in the Spanish giants being unable to register new signings, including the likes of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay, or officially tie Lionel Messi down to a new contract.

Coutinho is among those Ronald Koeman’s side are keen to offload, with the Brazil international struggling since moving to the Nou Camp from Liverpool for £142million three years ago.
