Barcelona set to offload Coutinho to avoid paying Liverpool another £17m


Philippe Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in a deal worth £142million at the start of 2018

The Catalans are becoming increasingly desperate to offload the Brazilian this summer with the playmaker edging closer to triggering £17million in payments to Liverpool by the club, according to a report.

Coutinho joined Barca from Liverpool in a deal worth £142million at the start of 2018 but has since struggled to live up to his transfer fee.

The Daily Mail cite Mundo Deportivo as claiming the figure was broken down in a series of installments with guaranteed fees set at £103million and appearance and success fees also added as part of 15 clauses Barca already has had to meet but the main clause of these is the £17m that would be paid to Liverpool if the 28-year-old reaches 100 games for the club.

Coutinho has currently played 90 times at the Nou Camp and it's understood the playmaker will be available for a fee lesser than £40m this summer but the Reds could pay even a more lesser fee if he completes 100 games.
