Coutinho swapped Liverpool for Barcelona in January 2018 in a transfer worth a believed £142 million, and the Spanish giants paid a large amount up front with the rest to be paid in bonuses.

When the Brazilian midfielder reaches certain milestones, it triggers a financial installment.

However, AS claim Barcelona still owe £84 million for Coutinho, who's now on loan at Bayern Munich following a miserable spell in Spain.

Barcelona also owe £25 million and £9.7 million to Gremio and Bayern Munich over the transfers of Arthur Melo and Arturo Vidal, respectively.

Coutinho, meanwhile, scored 21 goals during his one-and-a-half-year spell at the Camp Nou before securing a move to Bayern Munich in the summer.

And fans are starting to see the real Coutinho in Germany as he contributes with goals and assists.
