Liverpool ‘set to miss out on £17m bonus fee from Coutinho’s exit


Liverpool are set to miss out on a £17million transfer windfall from Barcelona due to Philippe Coutinho’s ongoing knee injury.

Coutinho signed for the Catalan’s in 2018 in a deal worth up to £140m, but has not featured for the club since being forced off against Eibar on December 29.

As a result, Liverpool are unlikely to receive the full payment outlined in the players contract as part of the deal included add-ons and instalments.

One of the add-on fees stipulated in the contract requires Barcelona to pay Liverpool £17m if Coutinho makes 100 appearances for the LaLiga side.

Coutinho is just 10 games away from reaching the milestone, however, a report from Marca says the Brazilian has suffered a succession of setbacks in his recovery and that he will miss the remainder of the season.

The LaLiga giants made the decision to send Coutinho for surgery on April 5th and had expected the midfielder to return in three months time.

However, the Spanish outlet claims Coutinho has since been ruled out of Barcelona’s remaining fixtures.

The news will come as a blow to Coutinho, who had hoped to revive his career at Barcelona.

Sportsmail reported last week that Ronald Koeman is eager to offload the Brazilian during the summer transfer window.

Coutinho has been linked with a potential return to the Premier League as Tottenham and Arsenal have previously declared their interest in the 28-year-old.

While a return to Liverpool has also been on the cards, as Jurgen Klopp will look to reinforce his struggling side.
