Barcelona are reportedly attempting to sell Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich before the end of the January transfer window.

Barcelona are allegedly prepared to sell Philippe Coutinho for a cut-price fee before the end of the January transfer window.

While Coutinho is spending the season on loan at Bayern Munich, it has been suggested that the German giants have little intention of paying £102m for the playmaker later in 2020.

With Barcelona needing to raise transfer funds as soon as possible, such a stance has seemingly resulted in the Catalan giants considering their options.

According to Catalunya Radio Barcelona, the La Liga champions may be happy to sell the 27-year-old for lower than the £102m fee which they had hoped to recoup from Bayern.

The report suggests that Barcelona want to hold discussions with the hierarchy at the German club in a bid to thrash out fresh terms.

Jean-Clair Todibo, Carles Alena and Carles Perez have already left Camp Nou this month, either on a permanent or temporary basis.
