In the report it shows that Barcelona owe a total of €126 million to 19 clubs with the highest outstanding debt being the €29 million still owed to Liverpool for the Coutinho deal.

Since his transfer the attacking playmaker hasn’t made the impact that was expected and even spent the entire 2019-20 season out on loan at Bayern Munich and has been unable to establish himself as a first-team regular at the Camp Nou.

So far this season Coutinho has scored three goals and provided two assists in 14 games but the Brazilian won’t be making more of an impact any time soon as he is sidelined for four months with an injury.
