Philippe Coutinho sacks , at least for now, of the FC Barcelona. The mediapunta will play in the Bayern of Munich yielded the next season after a year and half full of altibajos in the Camp Nou. The one who is the most expensive signing of the history of the Barça has not been to wing height of the expectations that there was around him and goes by the rear door.

It cost 120 million euros and other 40 in variables, but his performance has not been chord to the price that the barcelonistas paid by him does a year and half. The Barça him fichó so that it went the right hand of Leo Messi and led to the team after the course of Neymar Jr to Paris Saint-Germain, but the things did not go out as it expected .

The Brazilian did not adapt neither to his new role in the Barça neither to the position in which it planted him Ernesto Valverde. In season and average, has alternated parties in which it happened entirely unobserved, with others in which it was not hit and with some in which atisbó the well that it is in reality. When to Coutinho have gone out him the things is when it has seen the big player that is, but lamentably for him and for the Barcelona this has happened in very few occasions.

In his stage like Barcelona, the mediapunta has marked a total of 21 goals in 75 meetings contested and gave 11 assistances. Numbers very low taking into account his quality and his position in the terrain of game. It has played almost always of extreme in the 4-3-3 and asked him many more goals and especially a lot of more incidence in the game of the team. The ex of the Liverpool has not done neither a thing neither the another.

The goodbye or the see you later of Coutinho

The Bayern wants to go back to take out him shine to Coutinho and looks forward to to have his best version. The Germans have saved an option of purchase of some 120 millions in case the Brazilian despuntara and wanted to remain it in property. The international by Brazil could have said goodbye definitively to the Barça, but his course also could be a simple see you later.

The football gives a lot of turns and anybody knows what goes to happen with him. Quizás, the mediapunta recover his shine in Germany and can return to the Barça to triumph. Perhaps, in the Bayern neither of the level and the Barcelona have to admit that buy him was an error and an abysmal business. Or perhaps, the Brazilian himself was to the height in Munich, revalorice and the Bavarians or any another club pay the 120 millions that cost him to the Barça. All can happen in a year and the relation between Cou and the Barça could be simply in an impasse.
