Spanish champions, Barcelona have confirmed that an agreement is in place to loan their midfield maestro Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich.
The Brazilian midfielder has failed to impress since joining the Nou cmao from Liverpool in January 2018, and Barca have been keen to offload their big-money signing as they revamp the squad.
He was offered to a number of Premier League clubs before the English transfer window slammed shut but nothing materialised, and a move to the Bundesliga now appears to be the next stage of Coutinho’s journey.
According to goal, an agreement in principle is in place between the two clubs with the deal almost complete but not formally closed, with the player being left out of Barcelona’s La Liga season opener against Athletic Bilbao as his move to the Bundesliga champions inches closer.
Guillermo Amor, director of institutional and sporting relations for Barcelona and an official club spokesperson, told Movistar+: “I can confirm that there’s an agreement in principle in the case of Coutinho’s loan [to Bayern].”
