Decision made: Barca decides Coutinho’s replacement

FC Bayern will not pull the 120 million clause for Coutinho at the end of the season today and the Brazilian will therefore have to return to FC Barcelona. Meanwhile, it is not yet clear what will happen to the midfielder at Barca.

The Mundo Deportivo report that the Catalans have made at least an initial far-reaching decision internally. It is clear that if no club offers a transfer of at least 100 million euros, the Brazilian will not be sold. Whether another loan transaction is possible is open to question.

According to the report, FC Barcelona have not yet received a concrete offer for Coutinho. Nevertheless, there are said to be some interested parties in the Premier League who have already met with the advisors of the still Munich-based club.
