How Liverpool will receive £36million Philippe Coutinho add-ons through appearances and trophies

BARCELONA have paid Liverpool £109million up front for Philippe Coutinho, but the deal could eventually reach £145m.

And that possibility is very likely as the most of the additional fees reliant on on variables which could be easily met.

The Guardian reveal Liverpool will receive £17m once Coutinho has made 100 games for the club, and £4.4m once qualification for the Champions League is secured in the first two seasons.

While there will be another bonus of £4.4m if they win the competition.

Coutinho signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Catalans worth £236,000-a-week — and will be one of the highest-paid players at the club.

He has also been reunited with former Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez, as well as international pal Paulinho.

The Reds had initially refused to allow Coutinho to leave, and even issued a statement confirming that following intense speculation in the summer.

However, due to his strong desire to make the move, Liverpool reneged and sanctioned the transfer in January.

Coutinho's debut will be delayed as his medical highlighted a thigh problem, which will keep him out of action for 20 days.

Once Javier Mascherano's departure is confirmed, it is expected he will don the No 14 shirt.” target=”_blank” title=”Click to share on Twitter
