A good deal for the Villans, knowing that Coutinho had an option to buy 35 ME in his loan. But since Barcelona wanted to get rid of this flop, bought for 135 million euros from Liverpool in 2018, Aston Villa jumped at the chance. Especially since the 29-year-old has revived under Steven Gerrard this season with four goals and three assists in 16 games. It is therefore in the Birmingham club and in a championship that he knows well that Coutinho will try to find his best level.
