Barcelona willing to pay part of Coutinho wages for next move

Barcelona are prepared to pay a percentage of Philippe Coutinho's wages to get him off the books.

The Telegraph says Barcelona are willing to contribute to the Brazilian's wages to help secure a Bayern Munich stay, or alternatively a move to England.

London clubs Tottenham and Chelsea have both been linked with the midfielder, while Barcelona are reportedly also open to a swap-deal.

Coutinho's wages are reportedly around £200,000-a-week, which may be out of Tottenham's budget in the current climate.

With Chelsea nearing the signing of Timo Werner, also interested in Kai Havertz, a deal seems unlikely.
