According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Chelsea can sign Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho on loan for just £9 million.

Despite spending this season on loan at Bayern Munich, Barcelona are willing to facilitate a second successive loan move, with clubs unlikely to match their £71m asking price to purchase Coutinho outright.

The financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic means clubs will be unwilling to spend big in this summer transfer window and Barcelona are now willing to let Coutinho leave on loan next season.

Coutinho was loaned out to Bayern Munich this season, but the German giants have opted not to activate their £107m purchase clause.

Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in a £142m deal in January 2018 but has struggled to live up to expectations at the Spanish club after scoring 5 goals in 34 appearances in his first full season.
