Philippe Coutinho’s Bayern Munich Move Means Liverpool Will Miss Out On A Whopping £23m

Philippe Coutinho’s Bayern Munich Move Means Liverpool Will Miss Out On A Whopping £23m

Liverpool are set to miss out on a whopping £23m after Philippe Coutinho completed his loan move to Bayern Munich.

The German champions signed the Brazilian star, 27, on Monday and will pay Barcelona £7.78m for the initial loan fee, with an option to make the move permanent at an eye-watering £109.84m.

But Spanish newspaper Sport has reported that Liverpool are still waiting to receive £37m from different add-ons included in the Coutinho deal to Barcelona.

Liverpool received a cool £105m for the transfer and have pocketed an additional £14m through different instalments relating to appearances and performances.

However, the Reds would have received £18m more once the Bayern Munich new boy had hit 100 matches played for Barca and another £5m if he won the Champions League while playing in their side.

According to Transfermarkt, the Brazil international has made 76 appearances across all competitions for Barcelona following his move in January last year.

Coutinho could still return to Barcelona and those clauses could be met, but it looks highly unrealistic after his exit from the Camp Nou this summer.
