Bayern has definitely closed the door. On loan from Barça to Bayern since August, Philippe Coutinho has not failed for his first season in Germany where he scored 9 goals and distilled 8 assists in 32 games. But that was not enough to convince the Bavarian management to get their hands on the portfolio to definitively transfer it.
While the purchase option was set at 120 million euros, Karl-Heinz Rummunigge officially announced that it would not be exercised. The Brazilian will therefore return to Catalonia at the end of the season.
