Original title: Official announcement!Coutinho rents first, buys later

On the evening of January 7, Beijing time, La Liga giants Barcelona and Premier League powerhouse Aston Villa both issued official announcements stating that the two teams have reached an agreement on the transfer of Coutinho. Coutinho will join Aston Villa on a rent-and-buy basis, and the loan period will end at the end of the season. After the lease contract expires, Aston Villa has the right to buy out Coutinho. Neither team’s official website revealed whether the buyout clause is mandatory, and Barcelona officials also stated that Aston Villa will bear part of Coutinho’s salary. Aston Villa will fly to Birmingham soon, and he will formally sign a contract with Aston Villa after passing a medical examination and obtaining a labor certificate.

Coutinho made his debut in the Brazilian Da Gama team and played for Inter Milan and Spaniards early in his career. In 2013, Coutinho joined Liverpool and ushered in the highlight moment of his career. On January 6, 2018, Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool at a price of up to 160 million euros. But Coutinho has always been unable to adapt to Barcelona’s tactical system, he only played 106 times in Barcelona and scored 26 goals. In this season, Coutinho scored 2 goals in 16 appearances. During his time at Barcelona, ​​Coutinho had a record of 65 wins, 24 draws and 15 losses. He won 2 La Liga crowns, 2 Copa del Rey 2 crowns and 1 Western Super Cup with the team.

In the 19/20 season, Coutinho was rented out by Barcelona to Bayern. He scored 11 goals in 38 appearances at Bayern and won the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup triples with the team. But Bayern did not buy out Coutinho in the summer of 2020, and the Brazilian had to return to Camp Nou and continue to sit on the bench. Now joining Aston Villa is the second time that Coutinho has been rented out in his career.

The reason why Coutinho chose Aston Villa was largely due to the call of the team’s coach Gerrard. When Coutinho played for Liverpool, he had teammates with Gerrard. Coutinho’s goal now is to play more games in the new team in order to get a chance to play in the World Cup in Qatar. After Barcelona sent Coutinho away, they finally made room for salary in order to register new winter aid Ferran Torres.Return to Sohu to see more
