Given this, a lot of eyes will be on Coutinho and his performance levels for the season ahead, as the former Liverpool man looks to get his career back on track.
During the last 12 months, the Brazilian has really struggled to find consistent form at the Nou Camp, with the player now set to ply his trade in Germany in an attempt to find his form again.
During his time with Liverpool, and his first six months in Catalonia, the Brazilian looked like an absolute world beater, however given his performances last year, the midfielder now looks a shadow of his former self.
It’ll be interesting to see how Coutinho fairs at Bayern, and whether the player’s performance are enough to convince the Bundesliga outfit into making another move for the Brazilian international next summer.
