On Friday afternoon, Philippe Coutinho was on the pitch for FC Bayern. The Brazilian came on for the second half in the friendly against Olympique Marseille.
Together with his FCB colleagues, he is preparing for the upcoming Champions League final tournament (insofar as Bayern advance against Chelsea). But after that the paths will separate.
Coutinho’s loan ends in Munich. It goes back to FC Barcelona, but the Catalans also have no use for the playmaker.
Barca apparently wants to agree to barter
It is becoming increasingly clear that the former Liverpooler will return to the Premier League. And the best cards obviously have the Arsenal FC. Again Independent Reported, there is now even a deal in the room that would cost the Gunners just £ 9m.
Barca is therefore ready to agree to an exchange transaction. Coutinho could leave Spain for the 10 million euros mentioned plus the disgraced Matteo Guendouzi.
Now it is still a matter of whether Arsenal wins the final of the FA Cup on Saturday and thus still qualifies for the Europa League.
Will the deal really go ahead?
