Agent speaks out on United-linked Coutinho's situation amid Griezmann's likely arrival at Barcelona
- The Brazilian has been linked with a move to Old Trafford after the French striker's arrival at Camp Nou.
- Giuliano Bertolucci claims it's not true Griezmann will replace Coutinho at Barcelona.
Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he's leaving Atletico Madrid in summer. As Barcelona is likely going to be the Frenchman's next club, it might mean the Blaugrana would part ways with underperforming Philippe Coutinho.
Manchester United have been linked with the Brazilian for a while and such a course of events might finally open the 26-year-old's move to Old Trafford.
Coutinho is not really wanted at Barcelona and Griezmann's inevitable arrival could probably push the Brazilian out.Coutinho was linked with United some time ago— mutaifelix (@mutaifelix10) May 15, 2019

However, Giuliano Bertolucci, the playmaker's representative, stresses Griezmann's arrival does not necessarily imply Coutinho's departure. The agent has told AS:
"It's untrue that Griezmann is going to replace Philippe at Barcelona, 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."
