The past summer, the FC Barcelona decided to give exit to Philippe Coutinho that, after a season and average in the Camp Nou, did not achieve to fulfil with the expectations generated after his pertinent arrival of the Liverpool. The Brazilian, that neither was to taste in the Barcelona team, accepted willingly his cession to the Bayern of Munich, that paid to the culés 8,5 million euros.

Besides, the Bavarians also did with an option of purchase of face to final of season valued in 120 'kilos', just the quantity that the FC Barcelona had paid to the Liverpool like fixed part (there was another of other 40 variable millions). Nevertheless, the German press ensured that the Bayern of Munich already has decided that it will not pay such quantity by the carioca, since his performance has not been all the well that could expect .

Of course, the firm decision of the German group will be an important problem for the FC Barcelona, that will have to look for him accommodate to the carioca and that possibly finish losing a lot of money with a sale to the drop. Paris Saint-Germain or several big clubs of the Premier League would contemplate his arrival, but seems that the intentions of the footballer go on the other hand entirely distinct.

According to the informations desveladas in 'The club of the mitjanit', program of Catalonia Ràdio, the own Coutinho, that finishes agreement with the FC Barcelona in 2023, would have entirely decided that it wants to remain in the Bayern of Munich and already would have communicated him said decision so much to the German entity as to the club culé.

Given the circumstances, both clubs would have to renegotiate the conditions pactadas during the past summer. The Bayern will not pay 120 million euros by the player and the Barça knows of leftovers that does not go them to obtain of any team. Thus, from the Camp Nou would be had to recess his pretences until the 80 million euros, that would add to the 8,5 obtained by means of the cession.

Coutinho Has complicated to go back to the Barça

If finally there is not agreement with the Bayern of Munich and any another team is had to satisfy the economic expectations of the FC Barcelona (never underneath of the 80 millions mentioned previously), from Can Barça only would have two options: a new cession or give him to the carioca a second opportunity in the team.
