Philippe Coutinho's agent, Kia Joorabchian, has said the Barcelona playmaker would not consider a move to any Premier League side other than Liverpool.
The Brazilian has been linked with transfers to Manchester United and Chelsea, but Joorabchian believes if Coutinho were to return to the Premier League, it only would be to rejoin the Reds.
"Manchester United is a great club, I have players there and I have all the respect for them, but as far as Philippe goes it would be an extremely difficult to a near-impossible move.
"It would be very difficult for Philippe to play for any of Liverpool's rivals, because he has such a great affinity towards Liverpool. His time there was fantastic. His heart and affinity is very much with Liverpool," Joorabchian told talkSPORT.
Coutinho spent five years at Liverpool, before departing the club in January 2018 for a reported fee of £142 million ($178m), but has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at Camp Nou.
