Barcelona have confirmed Philippe Coutinho has joined Bayern Munich on a season-long loan with an option to buy for £109.8m.
The La Liga club say they will receive an upfront loan fee worth £7.78m from Bayern, who will also be paying the Brazil midfielder’s wages.
“Our thanks to FC Barcelona for agreeing to this transfer. In Philippe, a player comes to FC Bayern, who will strengthen our offensive with his creativity and excellent technique.”
Barcelona signed Coutinho from Liverpool only 18 months ago for a fee believed to be worth £146m.
