Bayern reach agreement to extend Coutinho’s loan until the end of the season


Bayern Munich will extend Philippe Coutinho’s loan deal from Barcelona until the end of the campaign, according to reports in Germany.

The deal to extend the loan beyond June 30 was agreed after discussions on Wednesday, making Coutinho eligible for the club’s Champions League campaign in August.

Coutinho, who has scored eight goals in 22 league games this campaign, is back in full training after a minor ankle surgery.

Bayern Munich decided against making the Brazil international’s loan deal permanent.

Barcelona are keen to sell the Brazilian, who they signed from Liverpool for £145m just three years ago, and have offered him to clubs, including Chelsea.

Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian claimed his client would love to come back to England, but questioned what the financial conditions of all teams would be after the coronavirus pandemic.

The striker is one of Barca’s top targets this summer window but the financial impact of the pandemic means they are unlikely to meet his £97m buy-out clause.

However, Lautaro is interested in joining Barcelona and personal terms are not expected to be a problem for a deal to be done.
