FC Bayern can rely on Philippe Coutinho in the upcoming Champions League games after the Bundesliga season has ended. The loan contract of the 28-year-old Brazilian, which was actually only dated until the end of June, would be extended until then, reports ‘Sky’.
Bayern agreed on this yesterday with Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian and FC Barcelona. However, Coutinho should not remain permanently on Säbener Straße. The Bavarians made no use of the 120 million euro purchase option.
