Liverpool are set to lose out on millions of pounds with Philippe Coutinho on the verge of a loan move to Bayern Munich, according to reports.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed on Friday that Coutinho was set for a medical over the weekend before completing a season-long loan deal.

The deal reportedly includes an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season if he proves a success at the Allianz Arena.

The Brazil international has flattered to deceive since his £142million switch from Anfield to the Nou Camp in January 2018.

And Spanish publication Sport (via Sport Witness) claims that Liverpool are set to lose €25m from the deal that convinced the Reds hierarchy to sell him to Barcelona.

The Catalan giants reportedly paid €120m up front with €40m coming in add-0ns with the Reds so far receiving €15m of the further ‘variables’.

The Reds got €10m for Barcelona qualifying for the Champions League in the last two seasons and €5m for him playing 25 matches for the club.

The report adds that because of his move to Bayern, the Reds are likely to miss out on €20m for him appearing 100 times for Barcelona and €5m for winning the Champions League while he is at the club.
