Messi tells Barcelona board to sell three flops - including Coutinho

Lionel Messi has seen enough from Philippe Coutinho at Barcelona.

Sport says Messi has named the three players he wants the club to get rid of this summer - with Coutinho among them.

It comes after the Spanish champions were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool at the semi-final stage on Tuesday.

Messi has asked Barcelona to get rid of Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti.

Coutinho has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, while a return to Liverpool or even Manchester United has not been ruled out but it seems extremely unlikely for this report to be true.
