Coutinho’s agent refutes claims Griezmann will replace Brazilian at Barcelona

Antoine Griezmann will not replace Philippe Coutinho at Barcelona at the end of the season, according to the Brazilian’s agent.

Despite an encouraging start to life at Barca, Coutinho has failed to recapture the form he showed at Liverpool before his €160million switch in January 2018.

This term, the attacking midfielder has managed only five La Liga goals in 34 appearances and failed to nail down a place in the starting XI, with 12 of his league outings coming from the bench.

“It’s untrue that Griezmann is going to replace Philippe at Barcelona,” Andrea Bertolucci told AS.

“I don’t know why they are saying that. I don’t know about that and that’s why I don’t want to talk anymore, but it’s false.”
