The Brazilian midfielder moved to the Nou Camp in January 2018 in a staggering deal worth up to €160million (£142m).
Both clubs agreed on a structured payment plan involving several installments and, according to Spanish publication Sport , roughly €50 (£43m) of that is still due to be paid to Liverpool. (MIRROR)
Barcelona broke their club record transfer to secure the signing of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool in January 2018 but the move has not gone to plan.
The deal was the most expensive in the club’s history coming in at a reported €120m initial payment although things have not quite worked out as hoped.
