Barcelona B Team Player Carles Perez Wears Coutinho’s No.7 Jersey in Chelsea Friendly

Phillippe Coutinho‘s Barcelona future looks increasingly unclear this evening after his jersey was worn by a B-team player during today’s friendly with Chelsea.

As we told you last week, Coutinho has been linked with a return to Liverpool after the Brazilian attacker decided to remove Barcelona from his official Instagram bio, just 18 months after completing a massive £140 million transfer to the Nou Camp.

Having been granted an extended summer holiday after taking part in the Copa America for his country, Coutinho was missing from today’s exhibition game in Japan, but his No.7 shirt wasn’t, with youngster Carrels Perez given the prestigious kit.

On the pitch, Frank Lampard’s youthful Blues recorded a 2-1 win over the Catalan giants, with goals coming from Tammy Abraham, Ross Barkley and Ivan Rakitic – but do you think Coutinho’s days in the iconic red and blue strip is numbered?

And will he end up back at Anfield?
