Coutinho to return to Inter

Reports have suggested the 17-year-old could be used as part of a deal that would see Lazio defender Aleksandar Kolarov join Inter Milan.

“Philippe Coutinho is currently on loan to Vasco da Gama, but from July, will become an Inter player,” Coutinho’s agent Cacau Barbosa told TMW.

“He will not be going to Lazio, as has been rumoured in the last few hours.”
