Barcelona Signs Philippe Coutinho From Liverpool For £142 Million by phoenixthefirst(m): 6:46pm On Jan 06, 2018
Barcelona have signed Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho in a club-record transfer.

Mirror Football understands that the Reds have settled on an agreement for the Brazilian for an initial fee of €120million (£106.4m), with a further €40m (£35.5m) in add-ons.

It is the second-most expensive transfer of all-time, trailing the £198million PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar last summer - and it is the most money ever received by an English club.

Coutinho will pen a five-year deal, with the Catalan giants likely to give him an extension in the summer to ensure his deal does not run out mid-season.

He was spotted in London on Saturday preparing to jet to Barcelona and link up with his new club.

This Coutinho January move doesn't really make much sense to me..He's not going to play in the champions league and barcelona are comfortable in the league..

They will win la liga without him, he will not be more expensive in d summer, may even be cheaper so why take on the burden of paying his salary between now and june when they don't really need him?

It doesn't seem to make sense. But if you look deeply, you will see the huge importance of signing him now.

Though Barcelona are comfortable in the league and Coutinho can only play in the league, playing Coutinho in the league will allow Iniesta to rest well in the league in order to focus on the Champions League.

Even if Liverpool win the Champions League, Barcelona will still be a far better team for Coutinho to win the Champions League, La Liga, and other trophies.

These people are causing global inflation with all these ridiculous figures.
In 5 years time, transfer fees will cost as much as £1billion for a single player.

Being a barca fan, i'd pick Hazard ahead of him any day any time. A great player tho, but just too expensive.

Nice. Klopp now has money to buy quality players. He started well with a nice signing. We need a quality playmaker that can feed the attack.
