Sportswear manufacturing giants Adidas have revealed the shirt number of Philippe Coutinho at German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich according to the UK Mirror.

The shirt number was leaked via their German language account on Instagram.

The deleted post had Coutinho’s name at the back of jersey number 10.

Philippe Coutinho wore the same jersey number while he was at Liverpool before his move to Spanish champions Barcelona at the start of 2018.

The 27-year-old has not found his form since he swapped England for Spain during the 2018 winter transfer window.

His transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona made him the most expensive player in the history of the Catalan club but the player has not been able to match that hype with his performances on the pitch.

Barcelona agreed on a club-record fee of €160m for Coutinho.

The Brazilian international will join Bayern Munich on loan for the new season for a fee of around €20m.

The Bavarian giants have the option to sign him on a permanent deal when the loan deal expires at the end of the season.

Philippe Coutinho would be the temporary replacement for the attacking duo of Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben.

Veteran wingers Robben and Ribery left the club this summer.
