Info FF – Transfers

Loaned by Barça to Bayern with a purchase option at 120 million euros, Philippe Coutinho will not be kept by the Bavarian club or the Catalan team. Rather, its future lies in the Premier League.

The Coutinho clan tilts for Newcastle

Everything will obviously depend on the takeover of the club in the North of England by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) chaired by Prince Mohamed Ben-Salman. For now, the transaction is put on standby by the call to block a plan to buy Newcastle United by a Saudi investment fund, formulated by Hatice Cengiz, the fiancée of the journalist murdered in late 2018 in the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. But while waiting for the file to be studied by the Premier League, negotiations have already started and the Coutinho clan seems to believe very strongly in the project and in the possibility for the player to be part of it.
