Bayern Munich Have The Option To Buy Philippe Coutinho For €120 Million

Bayern Munich Have The Option To Buy Philippe Coutinho For €120 Million

Bayern Munich are signing Philippe Coutinho on loan, with the Bavarians also having the option to outright purchase the Brazilian.

The former Liverpool man, who has struggled to settle at Barcelona, was linked with both Arsenal and Spurs as deadline day approached in England but will now head to the Bundesliga for a new challenge.

News emerged from various outlets on Friday evening and continued to hot up when the former Inter Milan playmaker was removed from Barca's squad for the trip to San Mames to play Athletic Bilbao in the season opener.

Then, following the 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin to kick off the season, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed that Coutinho will indeed be joining - and that the Bundesliga champions are able to sign him permanently.

According to SPORT, Bayern are paying around €20 million to have him for the season and can snap him up by paying Barcelona further €120 million as of June 30.

Coutinho left Liverpool in January 2018 when he sealed a dream £142 million move to Barcelona but the former Inter Milan playmaker has struggled in Spain, failing to properly establish himself as a first-team regular under Ernesto Valverde despite occasional moments of brilliance.

He will join Bayern with the hope of being afforded regular game-time and is slated to become Niko Kovac's fifth addition so far this summer.

The Bundesliga champions are also expected to add Mickaël Cuisance of Borussia Monchengladbach to the ranks before the summer transfer window is done and dusted.
