By the end of the season, Philippe Coutinho has reportedly decided to reduce his earnings by half to extend his loan from Barcelona to Bayern Munich.
Coutinho has so far spent the whole 2019-20 loan campaign with the German giants, supporting them win an eighth straight Bundesliga title with eight goals and six assists in 23 top-flight outings.
Next, Bayern will be in August’s Champions League action as the Bundesliga season is over now, while they will also have the DFB-Pokal final to compete in on Saturday.
At that time, to support Bayern’s treble bid, the Brazilian agreed to take a 50 percent pay cut, but he is still predicted to return to Barcelona at the end of the contract, with Bayern refusing to accept him for £108 m on a lasting basis according to The Daily Mail.
Rather, the Bavarian giants have agreed on to transfer for Leroy Sane, who is about to settle his Manchester City turn.
After the end of the campaign, Coutinho’s future remains unclear, with Barcelona excited to unload him to reduce their wage bill and heavily theorized a move back to the Premier League.
