Agent confirm Coutinho desire Premier League return

Philippe Coutinho works out during a rehab training session at Saebener Strasse training ground on May 19, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho wants to return to the Premier League, according to his agent, but is unsure if a transfer will be possible this summer.

Kia Joorabchian has said the former Liverpool playmaker would also be willing to stay at Bayern Munich, where he has spent this season on loan.

"He has a desire to come back to the Premier League at some point," Joorabchian told Sky Sports. "It may not happen this year, it may happen this year -- we don't know. We really have not discussed anything for now."

Bayern can sign Coutinho permanently in the summer for €120 million but they might not take up that option. However, extending the loan or negotiating a cheaper price with Barcelona has not been completely ruled out.

"It's up to Bayern Munich whether or not they want to extend the loan," Joorabchian added. "It's purely Bayern's decision, we have a will to stay, and we will see about next season when we get back to this 'new normal.' We've had some conversations with Bayern about next season [already]."
