Coutinho Signs For Aston Villa On Loan From Barcelona

Posted by

Former Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has agreed to join Aston Villa on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season.

The contract includes a £33 million option to buy the 29-year-old at the end of the season if he passes a physical and obtains a work visa.
Coutinho moved to Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 for £142 million.

The Brazil international, on the other hand, has not had the intended impact, and Barcelona is looking to reduce their pay expense.

Coutinho has also been linked with moves to Arsenal, Everton, Newcastle United, and Tottenham Hotspur.

The playmaker’s Nou Camp contract, which expires at the end of the 2022-23 season, has 18 months left on it. He has 26 goals in 106 appearances for the Catalans.
