Barcelona and Aston Villa reached an agreement for the transfer of Philippe Coutinho for 20 million euros.

Philippe Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018. Moreover, Coutinho played 106 times for Barcelona and scored 26 goals. 

However, he was not able to showcase his potential and was inconsistent. Therefore, he was sent out on loan to Bayern Munich and now to Aston Villa. 

However, after reuniting with his former Liverpool teammate, who is now the coach of Aston Villa, he has regained confidence and form. 

Coutinho has four goals and three assists this season in sixteen appearances in the Premier League. Coutinho told Aston Villa on their website after signing the contract: “I’m really happy, my family are really happy to be here,”

“It’s a top club and I always felt welcome when I arrived here, from everyone, so for me today is a happy day.

“I felt very welcome from the fans, from my team-mates and from the staff. Like I said, it’s a great club and we want to achieve big things.

“I believe so much in this club and that’s why I signed here. I’m very, very happy.”
