Philippe Coutinho move permanently to Aston villa

Philippe Coutinho move from Barcelona that started with a loan in January, now becomes a transfer.

Aston Villa and FC Barcelona have reached an agreement for Philippe Coutinho, and the Brazilian is no longer a Barça player.

Coutinho is still the most expensive signing in Barça’s history. However, since his move back in 2018, the Brazilian could not adapt to the life in Barcelona.

But his move to Aston Villa looks like the midfielder is happier and enjoying playing time under his former Liverpool teammate, Steven Gerrard.

Blaze Newz recalls that Coutinho’s move to Barcelona was one of those ‘Bad Karma’ moves that the former board made.

Coutinho forced his move, and eventually Liverpool sold him to Barcelona. However, with the money from that transfer, Liverpool brought Alisson and Van Dijk, and an empire was born.

In Barcelona, Coutinho was a symbol of the bad business that turned Barcelona into a club with financial troubles that has to make panic moves in the market.

It’s fair to say that Coutinho is probably our worst transfer ever. But it’s not his fault.

Coutinho forced his move because he wanted to make it in Barcelona. The club saw him as a replacement for Iniesta, and he wanted to play for Barça. So we should admire his ambition.

However, people will also remember his goal celebration vs Manchester United, and of course his brace against us while on loan at Bayern.

Barça will remove wages of over €400K per week with the sale of Coutinho. Absolutely huge.

Aston Villa had an option to buy Coutinho for 40m Euros, and according to reports other teams also were prepared to pay that amount. However, it looks like Coutinho found a home under Steven Gerard in Aston Villa. Therefore, the club and the player decided to be more flexible in the negotiations.

According to the reports, Aston Villa will pay around 20m Euros, and Barça will receive 50% of future sale.
