Revealed: How much Aston Villa must pay to sign Philippe Coutinho permanently

Aston Villa sign Philippe Coutinho

Aston Villa announced their first signing of the winter transfer window on Friday.

Villa have signed FC Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho on loan for the remainder of the season:

After landing Coutinho, Claret and Blue boss Steven Gerrard had the following to say:

“Sixty three caps for Brazil, a serial winner, played for Barcelona, was incredible at Liverpool. I can understand why a lot of supporters up and down the country are speaking about him. I don’t think you get a nickname as a Magician if you’re not a special footballer.

“He’s someone I’ve got an incredible amount of respect for.”

How much Aston Villa need to pay to sign Coutinho permanently

In truth, though of course a household name, Coutinho has struggled for any sort of consistent form for several years now, and is a slightly risky transfer.

He did enjoy a semi-decent loan stint with Bayern Munich, but even that was nothing to write home about.

However, the now-29-year-old has previously proven that he can be a quality player with the ability to cut it in the Premier League.

Should his loan go well, could Villa therefore be interested in signing Coutinho permanently?

If they do wish to do so, it is reported that the Midlands-based outfit would have to pay £33m come the end of his loan:
