Firmino is not going to be in Barcelona

The Catalan Barcelona will not buy at least until 2021. It became known based on a clause in Coutinho’s contract, by which Liverpool secured themselves against the purchase of football players by the Spanish giant.

Cadena SER has become aware of information regarding additional clauses when buying Coutinho by Barcelona from Liverpool. The Merseyside club did not let the Brazilian go in the summer and it was only in the winter that Blaugranas made a deal with the Reds. The sum of the transfer amounted to 160 million euros, but the British functionaries have protected the team from the players leaving.

According to the clause in the contract, Barcelona cannot buy players of the current silver medalist of the Champions League until 2021. Therefore, the interest of the Catalan giant to the Brazilian striker of Liverpool is impossible. At least in the next three years.

At the same time, the details of the contract of the midfielder, which was intended to replace the departed Iniesta, became known. The amount of compensation for Coutinho is 400 million euros, and the agreement itself is valid until 2023.
