Coutinho joins Bayern Munich for loan fee of 8.5m euros

Philippe Coutinho has spoken of his desire to live up to expectations after moving from Barcelona to Bayern Munich on loan for the 2019-20 season in a deal that includes an option to buy.

Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge thanked Barcelona for agreeing to the transfer but he won't be happy with their statement announcing the move.

"Arjen had no problem with it".

Now Coutinho, who had been linked with Bayern Munich in recent weeks, has made his exit from the Camp Nou and could be the latest victim of the 'Barca curse'.

The German champions splashed out £7.78m for the initial loan fee for the 27-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder and can make the move permanent by paying Barcelona £109.84m.

"Bayern Munich will pay €8.5 million and the player's wages".

Banks will retain discretion as to how they price rates for loans maturities of less than 1-year and within 1-5 years. But existing loans will still follow the original contracts that were signed in line with the benchmark lending rate.

"In Barcelona, a lot of things did not turn out as we had imagined".

Despite the difficulties Coutinho had at Barça, he is adamant it was not all a negative experience - though he had no doubts about leaving for Bayern. "I learnt a lot, won a lot with that club and then we had the Copa América, which I won with Brazil and that was really important".

Liverpool could miss out on a whopping £23m after Coutinho sealed his season-long loan to the Bavarians. It's good when such a name plays in the Bundesliga, " Borussia Dortmund chief executive told German daily Bild.

Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January past year for approximately 142 million pounds, was the third most expensive transfer in history but he failed to hit the same heights at the Camp Nou as he did with Liverpool.

Tottenham ended their interest in a loan deal for Coutinho earlier this month, while he was also linked with moves to Arsenal and back to Liverpool.

Bayern had been pursuing Germany winger Leroy Sane as its No. 1 target to help fill the void left by Robben and Ribery, but turned to alternatives after Sane injured his knee while playing for Manchester City.
