Philippe Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian fears Barcelona insiders are attempting to undermine the former Liverpool playmaker and engineer his sale.

The Brazil international joined the Catalan giants in a staggering £145million deal 18 months ago, but has struggled to live up to expectations and nail down a settled spot in Ernesto Valverde's starting XI. Speculation surrounding the 27-year-old's future intensified further this week with Antoine Griezmann's controversial move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona nearing completion.

Joorabchian insists Coutinho's future remains at Barcelona and met with club officials to gain the club's categorical position on his client's future.

'I was told they have no intention of selling him, that Barcelona have not spoken to anyone and that stories to the contrary are simply not true,' Joorabchian told the Telegraph.

'I won't let them do that and all of us in Philippe's camp will not let that happen because Barcelona have told us he is staying.

'Coutinho's camp are not actively looking to move him but we believe people inside Barcelona may be acting without authority to try and sell the player.

Either Barcelona have to contain the people within their organisation who are giving out information to the contrary or they have to tell us the truth if they have changed their minds.
