Bayern are ready to end Coutnho’s Barcelona transfer nightmare, but are not willing to spend serious money in order to do it.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Bayern want the 27-year-old on loan for two seasons, with only an option but no obligation to buy in 2021.
This is the same deal they did for James Rodriguez in 2017, only to decide against the Colombian this summer and allow him back to parent club Real Madrid.
According to Sky Sports., Coutinho doesn’t fancy a switch to the Bundesliga in the same manner he rejected a loan move to Spurs on deadline day.
In January 2018, when Liverpool sold the Brazilian for such an outrageous fee, he could have walked into any side on the planet – but 19 months or so later – he’s in danger of becoming somebody his club do not want, and somebody nobody else can afford.
