  • Print




Philippe Coutinho has arrived at Bayern Munich to complete his medical as he edges closer to sealing his loan move from Barcelona.
The Brazilian midfielder has agreed to join the Bundesliga champions on a season-long loan deal - with Bayern having the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the campaign.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said on Friday: "I can confirm that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge [Bayern chairman] and I have been in Barcelona this week, agreeing with the player and the adviser.
"We had very good talks and I want to say thank you to Barcelona.
"Medical check and signature and we are very happy to have won this player, it will be a one-year loan deal with a call option."
Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 but has failed to impress at the Nou Camp.
