According to ‘Sky Sport’, the deal to seal the Philippe Coutinho’s move to Aston Villa is almost sealed. The English side will reportedly get a loan deal to count on the Barca player until the end of the current season.
Barcelona are in the middle of a mission to try and reduce their wage bill during the January transfer window to help them register their new players.
One of the players who is set to leave the Camp Nou is Philippe Coutinho. According to ‘Sky Sport’, this could happen soon because negotiations with Aston Villa have reportedly advanced considerably.
In these moments, the boards of the two clubs are looking for an agreement to define the details of the loan deal and the salary which the Brazilian will earn. Coutinho would play under Steven Gerrard until the end of this season.
Journalist Helena Condis also talked about the existence of talks between Aston Villa and Barca, who need to let several footballers go so they can, amongst other things, register Ferran Torres.
