The Spanish newspaper claim that the 26-year-old has told some of his team-mates that a move to another club is a genuine possibility this summer.
Coutinho is said to be eyeing up a switch to one of Europe’s leading clubs, with a return to the Premier League most likely.
Earlier this week Mundo Deportivo reported that Barca wanted to use Manchester United’s interest in the Brazilian to help them land Marcus Rashford.

The Red Devils were described as being ‘very interested’ in Coutinho, although it is not known whether his links to Liverpool would stop him moving to Old Trafford.
Barca are understood to be willing to listen to offers for Coutinho, although they want to recoup around £136m in any deal.
The former Inter Milan star has made 41 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring nine goals.
