Catalan club FC Barcelona knows the current form of Philippe Coutinho in the English Premier League could keep the profit from his potential sale to 40 million as per Fichajes.
Coutinho moved to FC Bayern Munich in 2020 after a poor start to his Barcelona career. His return to the club had great hopes for returning the former hitman who was Liverpool’s best player in the Premier League.
However, the South American has not built on his form at Bayern Munich. For Barcelona, the only option now is a loan move that could result in a possible sale. And this move has already seen the light of the day in the Premier League, at Aston Villa.
Barcelona included a 40 million euros tag on the Brazilian who’ll remain at the Premier League club until the end of the season. So far, Coutinho has turned out to be the game-changer at Aston Villa in the hands of Steven Gerrard, who was recently appointed to take charge of the team.
What Barcelona expects from Philippe Coutinho Aston Villa loan transfer
Barcelona’s board would be expecting nothing less than 40 million euros as an option to buy at the expiration of his loan spell. Although this is dependent on the decision of the Villans, the current form of Coutinho means Barcelona may receive it at the end of the season.
For Coutinho, his rise isn’t just in the Premier League alone; he scored a thunderbolt in the FIFA World Cup qualifying with Brazilian Men’s National Team.
