Bayern Munich have managed to acquire Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho. The season-long contract for the attacking midfielder comes with an option to purchase the player.
As Barcelona informed, the German club is expected to shell out up to 8.5m euros for the player aged 27. That’s a loan amount, while the final purchase sum accounts for up to 120m euros.
Moreover, the German side will also pay the player’s wages for the period of the loan spell.
The player told that there were several things he was dissatisfied with in Barcelona but it’s all in the past. He added that he hopes to play for the German side for a long time and achieve good outcomes. The player also stressed that his number 10 in his new club suggests a huge responsibility since it was Robben’s number in the past.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the Bayern CEO told that they are generally satisfied with their collaboration with Philippe Coutinho and put a lot of value on this promising transfer.
