Barcelona winger Coutinho is not currently in the good books of the Nou Camp faithful.

The Brazilian was booed by home fans earlier this month as Barca cruised to a 3-1 win over Rayo Vallecano.

Coutinho has struggled to bed in at the Catalan side following his £142m move from Liverpool just over a year ago.

And having seen the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez fire on all cylinders this term, Barca fans clearly feel their team-mate should be doing more to help their cause.

One solution for the two parties is for Barca to let go of Coutinho this summer.

The Brazil international has been linked with a return back to the Premier League in recent months with Manchester United.

And Barca have named their price for him, demanding upwards of £90, according to ESPN.

A source at the club told ESPN FC: “Barcelona do not have a firm offer from any club at this point, but some have expressed an interest in the player.

“Key people, who are either directly or indirectly linked with various clubs have been following the situation closely.”

Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique leapt to the defence of Coutinho after his unkindly reception from fans.

The Spain legend insists his pal has performed this year, confirming he still had the full backing of the club.

“Philippe is having a good season,” Pique told reporters.

“Obviously, he cost a lot and that means there are higher expectations surrounding his performances.

“It is what it is. You have to accept the reaction of the fans because at the end of the day they’re our supporters, you have to respect [their opinion].

“We, his teammates and people at the club have to give him all the support in the world.

“We need him at his best in the final stage of the season and I’m sure he will be.”
