Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich have reportedly agreed a loan deal for Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian’s £142 million move from Liverpool in January 2018 has fallen short of expectation, with his eventual exception from the first eleven at Camp Nou.
Barca has already signed Antoine Griezmann in a big-money move this summer and want to follow that up by securing a deal for Neymar, which will further complicate things for Coutinho.
Coutinho had rejected a loan to a Premier League side, with Tottenham Hotspur, out of respect for his former club, Liverpool.
But now, Bayern will be getting Coutinho for free, although they will have to pay the entirety of his €11 million-per-season wages.
Bayern are now in conversation with the Coutinho’s representatives and hope to strike a deal.
They will then have the option to purchase at the end of the season.
