Philippe Coutinho arrived in Munich this Sunday to pass his medical before signing for Bayern Munich.

In the end, Bayern Munich were the club to roll the dice and while Coutinho was only brought in on loan, they have the option to make the deal permanent for a fee of over €100 million. The deal will cost Bayern £7.8m plus wages, and the agreement also includes an option to buy, fixed at £109.8m.

The fact that Coutinho scored 21 goals in 75 games from midfield is proof that his time in Catalonia wasn't all that bad and that, if nothing else, he produced sound statistics.

The Brazil worldwide had been suggested as a potential makeweight in a deal to take Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain back to Camp Nou, but Bayern secured his loan signing with a €120m purchase option.

He told Bayern's official website : "For me, this move means a new challenge in a new country with one of the best clubs in Europe".

Coutinho joined Barca from Liverpool in January 2018 and has since struggled to reproduce the kind of form he showed for the Reds.

Bayern had announced on Friday evening that a deal "in principle" to sign Coutinho had been agreed, with Rummenigge and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic having been in Barcelona that week. In his first comments, the Brazilian made it clear he doesn't want to return to Barcelona next summer. "I hope to stay here a long time and win many titles".

"I was presented with an ambitious project, I'm an ambitious guy, and I talked to Thiago, Rafinha and Lucio, and I've heard a lot of good things, they really helped me a lot".

'He said that jersey No 10 fits perfectly with Coutinho'. "Apart from that, Barcelona didn't what to hinder the transfer as Philippe very much wanted to come to us".

Barcelona prefers this approach as they have already racked up a massive transfer bill this summer, spending over $220 million on the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong, Junior Firpo, and Neto.
