Bayern Munich say no to Brazilian star permanent move

According to BILD, Bayern Munich have decided they will not be making the loan move of Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho a permanent one.

The 27-year-old former Liverpool man is currently on loan to the Bavarian club from Spanish champions Barcelona, but has reportedly “failed to impress” enough to warrant the German giants triggering his option.

The option to buy clause in the Coutinho’s loan deal say that Bayern can make the move permanent for a whopping €120m fee, having already paid €8.5m for the season. The Bild report revealed Bayern are not “satisfied” with the development of the player and are unwilling to pay such a high fee.

This season, Coutinho has made 16 appearances in the league, starting on 12 of those occasions. In his combined 1,064 minutes of time on the field in the Bundesliga, the Brazilian has managed six goals and five assists so far.

Bayern Munich move on from Coutinho

In other competitions, Coutinho has represented Bayern six times in the Champions League and once in the DFB-Pokal. He’s managed one goal and two assists in Europe’s premier club competition, while failing to register either a goal or assist in the German cup.

The BILD report went on to specify other details about Bayern and their transfer strategy for the year ahead. While they have been continuously linked with a move for Timo Werner – the report says they will not be making a move for the Leipzig talisman this summer.

Meanwhile, BILD say that Bayern WILL however make moves for Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz as well as Manchester City winger Leroy Sane – so we could yet see the German champions spend some serious cash this summer.
