Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have confirmed the exit of midfielder Philippe Coutinho to German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
The announcement was made by the Spanish champions on Monday.
Coutinho will join Bayern Munich on a season-long loan deal with the option for a permanent transfer.
Bayern will pay €8.5m for the loan deal and part with €120m if they want to make the loan deal a permanent one.
Philippe Coutinho will wear the number 10 jersey at his new club.
The former Liverpool star didn’t have the best of times at Barcelona.

He spent 18 months at the Nou Camp but the Brazilian international didn’t live up to his hefty price tag.
Philippe Coutinho is the most expensive player in the history of Barcelona after the Catalan giants paid €160m for his transfer from Premier League giants Liverpool.
He left the reigning European champions controversially for Barcelona in January 2018.
During his 18 months at Barcelona, Philippe Coutinho helped the club to win two Spanish La Liga titles as well as the 2017/18 Spanish Copa Del Rey title.
Philippe Coutinho would be the direct replacement for Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez who spent the last two years at Bayern Munich on loan from the Spanish giants.
