But German giants’ offer not good enough for Barca
Bayern Munich are willing to enter talks with Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho, but they are only interested in taking him on loan, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Barca have offered the Brazilian to the Bundesliga champions as they want to offload him before the transfer window closes.
Bayern want Coutinho on a two-year loan with an option to buy – a similar deal to the one they made with Real Madrid for James Rodriguez – but Barcelona are not happy with the offer.
While Bayern still have time to improve on their initial bid, Paris Saint-Germain remain in contention to get Coutinho as part of a possible dal for Neymar.
