Huge mistake! Barcelona fans cry foul over Coutinho’s release to German giants


Barcelona fans bewail after their club gets into an agreement with Bayern Munich over their star Philippe Coutinho, who has been sent to the German club on loan.

According to reports, the Brazilian has been signed by the Munich-based club on a season-long loan deal which includes an option to buy.

Barcelona says the German side will pay 8.5m euros (£7.78m) to take the Brazilian midfielder on loan while the option to buy stands at 120m euros (£109.84m).

This news has not been received well by Barca fans, who now condemn the club for releasing good players to their rivals.

Coutinho joined the Blaugrana from Liverpool in a £142m deal in January 2018. Despite scoring 21 goals in 76 appearances for the Spanish giants, he fell short of expectations and had been linked with several clubs this summer.

It was believed that he would be part of Barcelona’s bid to bring back Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain, with the Spanish club reportedly willing to offer 100m euros (£92.4m) plus the midfielder for the PSG forward.
