Barca finally signs Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho for $142M

Philippe Coutinho Barca

Philippe Coutinho has been one of the toughest bidding this season, as there has been a lot of turn downs and reopening of the bidding.

Although the player is eager to leave for Barcelona but the premiere league team Liverpool still wants him so this has been a tough decision.

Mirror Football understands that the Reds have settled on an agreement for the Brazilian for an initial fee of €120million (£106.4m), with a further €40m (£35.5m) in add-ons.

It is the second-most expensive transfer of all-time, trailing the £198million PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar last summer – and it is the most money ever received by an English club.

Coutinho will pen a five-year deal, with the Catalan giants likely to give him an extension in the summer to ensure his deal does not run out mid-season.

He was spotted in London on Saturday preparing to jet to Barcelona and link up with his new club.
