Still, doubts continue to surround the Brazilian about his longer-term future. Bayern Munich will not sign him forever after a mixed loan spell in which he was hardly a regular starter, plus the German champions have already signed Leroy Sane to bolster their attacking corps.

Coutinho extended his deal with Bayern for another two months

Philippe Coutinho is preparing for Bayern Munich’s UEFA Champions League tie with Chelsea after extending his loan at the Bavarian club for another two months. Still, doubts continue to surround the Brazilian about his longer-term future. Bayern Munich will not sign him forever after a mixed loan spell in which he was hardly a regular starter. And plus the German champions have already signed Leroy Sane to bolster their attacking corps. Barcelona doesn’t want him either. The Catalan club hopes to sell the Brazilian and win back as much of the fee they paid. To put this in context without allowing a miraculous turn of events, Coutinho. He became Los Cules’ record holder for €160 million in January 2018, will be ousted from Barca after less than two full seasons with them.

Barca want to sell him for €80 million

The challenge, however, is finding a buyer who can meet the financial demands placed on the player’s head by Barca. Especially in a tight market affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. No official offers have been made yet, despite the Blaugrana doing little to keep his availability under wraps as clubs ditched the €80 million price tag. Barcelona would not mind another loan deal. Although they would require that the player’s wages be paid in full by the club. Which would theoretically exclude Arsenal from being discussed as one interested party. Coutinho’s deal with Barcelona runs until June 2023. So there is still time for Barcelona to sell the midfielder who has scored a lowly nine goals in 30 games.

Kia Joorabchian has been instructed by his client to find him a place in the Premier League. Where he had his best success while representing Liverpool. However, much of the contact that has arisen from this demand has been informal. So the doors have closed for Coutinho in England. Especially with Liverpool, which has moved to a better future without him. Barcelona expects Bayern Munich to make progress in the Champions League and perhaps hope that the Brazilian will shine on the big stage and persuade the club to take the financial gamble on him. Still, there are no guarantees at this time.
