Vasco Da Gama Starlet Philippe Coutinho Eagerly Awaiting Inter’s Decision On His Future

Brazilian midfield prodigy Philippe Coutinho is desperate to know whether Italian champions Inter will recall him from his loan spell at Vasco Da Gama at the end of the season.

The 17-year-old was signed by the Nerazzurri in 2008 but was allowed to stay on loan at his youth club until next June when he turns 18.

Press reports last month suggested that Vasco Da Gama were keen to retain his services until at least January 2011, a request that Inter allegedly turned down.

But Coutinho admits he is still in the dark about where he will ply his trade after this summer.

“I don’t know what my future is,” he said to GloboEsporte.

“I don’t know if I will stay here for one more season or if I will leave. I’d like to know the club’s decision as soon as possible.”
