Bayern Munich administration may not move as fast as other teams, but it is certain that it is doing well. After being unfortunate in the case of Leroy Sane, who was too close to moving to his home country and Bavaria, he was injured and will now return to racing action after 3-4 months. This is the fact that he left Bayern behind. But he did not stop looking for some, not just a good solution, but a good solution.
So, after several contacts, he essentially reached an agreement with the Barcelona administration. She gets a 1-year loan from her international Brazilian midfielder, Philippe Coutinho. A very experienced footballer, having played in Liverpool and Barcelona and with ambitions as high as her own.
Bayern Munich does not just want to keep the reins in Bundesliga. She wants to conquer Europe as well and Coutinho is able to help her in this. The 27-year-old footballer who moved to Camp Nou in January 2018 in the 75 games, he played with the Barcelona jersey (21 goals) could not deliver what he wanted. She naturally won 4 titles with her. But he could neither find a key position nor persuade Valverde and the club’s followers that … tomorrow would be his!
He was thus restricted to a role that he certainly did not like or fit into, but he himself did not care to talk and show on the pitch that he could do something more. So it was only logical for him to spend some time on the bench or even a little on the sidelines. Coutinho, when he signed for Barcelona in January 2018, reaching € 120m signing, could not immediately get in the way of his new team.
The Brazilian was destined to be Andres Iniesta’s heir to the Camp Nou – the creative force that would give Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez more and more opportunities to make the goal easier. It was sporadic. Of course, it is true that in Barcelona he did not know the love of the world, as in Anfield. But as we mentioned before, he did not go as far as he should.
Coutinho No. 10
But now that Bayern Munich has made the move after negotiations and meetings that have been held for a long time. She took care of it and found it with the Barcelona administration and got Philippe Coutinho, a footballer capable of offering her great things and why not be her new leader.
In fact, agents from the Bavarian club also contacted Arjen Robben and told him if he had any objections to the No. 10. preferable – to give Coutinho. In this way, the German team immediately shows how much it calculates and bets on its new acquisition. Bayern borrowed Coutinho for a year with a market outlook reaching € 120m next summer.
The 27-year-old Coutinho successfully passed the necessary medical exams on Sunday morning (18/08) and his official announcement of his admission took place on Monday (19/08).
He was visibly pleased: “For me, this move means a new test in a new country and in one of Europe’s biggest teams. I look forward to this! I have high expectations that I can achieve with my new teammates! “
