Philippe Coutinho's agent, Kia Joorabchian, claims 'no decision has yet been taken' about his client's future.

Bayern have a €120 million purchase option on Coutinho, who is on loan from FC Barcelona until June 30, and Joorabchian insists it's not currently clear if the Brazilian international will head back to Spain or stay in Munich beyond the summer.

"Regarding his future, no decision has yet been taken as I have said many times during this period of uncertainty in the world, we have not discussed or are discussing any transfers or future plans," Joorabchian told Sport1.

The Brazilian international is currently recovering from an injury and is hoping to be fit in three to four weeks, according to Sport1.

"Philippe is very happy in Munich. He likes the club and the high degree of professionalism there. The most important thing for him is to concentrate on a quick recovery to help his team on the pitch as soon as possible. After that, we will see how things go," Joorabchian said.

Sport1 claims that a second loan is not an option for either of the two clubs, meaning that Coutinho will either join Bayern on a permanent deal or return to Barcelona.

"In the end it could be a question of the price," claims Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg on Twitter.
