Coutinho doesn't want to return to Barca: "I would love to stay at Bayern"

Philippe Coutinho showed his desire to stay at Bayern Munich, who he is currently on loan at from Barcelona this season. The German outfit have the option to buy him.

"I feel very comfortable. I plan to stay here for a year and concentrate on this moment. But if it all fits, I'd love to stay," Coutinho said In Kasing, a Bayern fan club, during the traditional annual visit of Bayern players for the Christmas holidays, according to the Bundesliga's official website.

Coutinho, who did not perform as expected at Barcelona, who he signed for two years ago in the winter market from Liverpool, feels important at Bayern, who have begun a new stage with the arrival of Hansi Flick as manager.

"We've understood his way of training and playing well. That's why things are going well. Flick makes everyone feel important. We're happy but aware that there's a lot of work to be done," one of the most expensive signings in Barcelona's history said.

The Brazilian had already admitted feeling comfortable in German football. "Some of my team-mates from Brazil have asked me how things are going at Bayern. I told them how happy I am to be there. My team-mates, the club, the fans, the media gave me a great welcome and I want to repay it with goals and performances on the pitch," he said in an interview with Sport Bild.

Coutinho arrived at Bayern Munich last summer after a difficult spell at Barcelona. The German club paid 8.5 million for the loan and have an option to buy him for 120 million.
