It is reported Philippe Coutinho paid €10m of the €160m that Barcelona agreed with Liverpool to make him La Liga’s record purchase.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho made the gesture to ensure the transfer would go through, tying in with Jurgen Klopp’s claim that the Brazilian was ‘desperate’ to join the Blaugrana.
The newspaper adds the Brazilian attacker will undergo a medical, before being unveiled at Camp Nou on Monday.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports the 25-year-old is already in Barcelona, where AS expects him to be paraded before the Blaugrana’s match against Levante this afternoon.
