Barcelona to Buy Out Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool at a Whooping £142 Million

  • Barcelona has reportedly closed a £142 million deal with Liverpool and is all set to sign Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho. The 25-year old Brazil’s playmaker is expected to enter a 5 and a half year deal at the Nou Camp. Reports say there will be a buyout clause of 400m euros in the deal. Per the deal, Liverpool will receive an upfront amount of £105 million from Barcelona and the rest will be disbursed in realistic add-ons. With the finalization of the deal, it becomes second largest buy-out deal in the history of club football. This £142 million deal is only eclipsed by the deal, where Paris St-Germain paid £200 million to Barcelona for buying out Neymar last summer.
