Bayern Munich have made no decision on whether they’ll buy Coutinho permanently following his loan deal, according to Sport.
That’s because CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed as much, despite being happy with the Brazilian’s contribution to date.
“He doesn’t have the attitude of a star. He’s a friendly person, popular around the club and we’re really happy with the deal we managed to close,” he said.
But pressed on whether Bayern would pay the required €120m to make the transfer permanent, Rummenigge said, “We will decide when the moment arrives.”

Coutinho originally wanted to return to Liverpool this summer just gone, but Jurgen Klopp, Michael Edwards and co decided it wasn’t a financially viable deal – considering the extortionate loan fee it would’ve required and the monstrous sum in 2020 for a then 29-year-old.
We’re happy he’s doing well in Germany. He must regret the manner in which he exited Liverpool, but he was following his dream and in doing so, enabled us the money to buy Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and then win the Champions League.
