The Brazilian has not seen a door for a month, his price continues to fall and doubts about his continuity grow in the German club.
In other words, the good star with which Coutinho landed in Munich shows signs of going out and the player, far from rebelling, is even losing presence quota as it had been a year ago in the ranks of Barcelona. The Catalan club decided to part with it only a year and a half after having paid a whopping 120 million euros, in addition to another 40 in variables, it put it on the market without any club approaching these figures, which were already higher at its real price, according to Transfermarkt, when Barcelona took over its services, and it ended last summer transferred to Bayern.
In his first stage in Barca the striker did reach a price of 150 million euros but a year to this part has fallen back to the 90 million that was worth when he signed Barcelona, even if he paid a lot more for him. Bayern, on the other hand, has a purchase option at the end of the season of 120 million euros, a figure that has never paid to hire any player. In this context, it should not be forgotten that the most expensive operation that the Bavarians have faced throughout their history is that of Lucas Hernandez, which cost 80 million euros, which doubles the 40 that Corentin Tolisso cost, the second most expensive. Last season he even ruled out the incorporation of James Rodriguez for 40 million euros.
And that same it is what Barcelona fears that it might happen to Coutinho, who returns to Camp Nou as James did to the Bernabeu last summer and, in the absence of satisfactory offers, I had to keep him on the staff. Because without forgetting Bayern's disappointment with Coutinho, we must also bear in mind that the priority objectives of the Bavarian team next summer will be the hiring of Leroy Sane, currently in Manchester City, and Kai Havertz, who shines at Bayer Leverkusen. Obviously, Coutinho's opinion about the new Bayern coach may have to be known, but what is evident is that the crush of the German club by the Brazilian is a thing of the past.
