What is Philippe Coutinho’s salary per week? FC Barcelona flop moves to Aston Villa: Premier League Transfer News 2021/22
Yet another superstar returns to the magical Premier League football, as Alley Sport discusses “What is Philippe Coutinho’s salary per week?” and his new move to England.
Phil Coutinho, a Brazilian magician, showed the Premier League some of his spells with a stint at Liverpool. His antics at Anfield earned him a big money move to Spain, with giants FC Barcelona considering him as an ideal replacement for the ageing Andreas Iniesta. However, things did not work out well in Spain for Coutinho, who returns to the Premier League, this time with Aston Villa.
What is Philippe Coutinho’s salary per week?
Coutinho reunites with former Liverpool teammate, Steven Gerrard, who is the current manager of Aston Villa. He joins the club on a 6 month loan deal, with an option to buy at the end of the deal, as Villa cover less than 50% of his Barcelona salary + bonuses. Coutinho will be earning around £380,000 a week in 2022 if he were to stay in Spain. It means Aston Villa will be paying around £247,000 a week for services of the Brazilian.
Philippe Coutinho is due to travel to Birmingham in the coming 48 hours, as Aston Villa push to make the loan valid, to make Coutinho in contention for the Manchester United game in the FA Cup. Steven Gerrard termed his former teammate as a “serial winner”, however, it was interesting to note that former club Liverpool were not keen to sign the Brazilian.
Coutinho’s journey with the Catalans
Phil Coutinho was one of the marquee signings of January 2018, with a club-record £146m move to Barcelone from Liverpool. He struggled to make the first team in Spain, and also spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Bayern Munich, where he struggled to make an impact as well. He made 76 appearances for Barcelona in La Liga, scoring 17 goals and 11 assists in the process as he leaves Spain for England once again.
