Liverpool are set to miss out on up to £80m of the fee Barcelona owe them for the purchase of Philippe Coutinho, who is now on loan with Bayern Munich.

Liverpool are reportedly set to miss out on £80m of the fee they are owed for Philippe Coutinho.

The Reds sold the Brazilian to Barcelona in January 2018 for £142m as the La Liga giants looked for a long-term replacement for Andres Iniesta.

However, things did not quite work out for Coutinho in Spain and he is now on loan with reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, where he is rediscovering his form and confidence.

Barca, though, have not finished paying the instalments due for Coutinho, and still owe the Merseysiders around £84m, according to The Mirror.

It seems, however, that Liverpool will only receive £4.5m of that sum, with the remainder being paid to a third-party lender.
