Brazilian attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho agree to reduce their own wages. This paved the way for a permanent transfer to Aston Villa.

Coutinho is on loan at Aston Villa until the end of the season after joining from Barcelona in January. With an absolute purchase price of 33 million pounds at the end of this summer Aston Villa are undisput with a £33million fee that the club’s owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are willing to pay. But the main problem lies in the player wages that will have to completely destroy the ceiling of the ufabet club.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reports that Coutinho has agreed to cut his wages. To be able to move to Aston Villa permanently. After being happy to return to their good form again in the Premier League. Arsenal have also been link with a bid to sign Coutinho this summer. But it is highly likely that the 29-year-old will choose to stay at Aston Villa if the buyout clause is apply to Barcelona.

That far outstrips Villa’s current wage ceiling, the £120,000 that they pay to Danny Ings. Who earns 50% more than the next-best reimbursed players on the list.

Coutinho’s £142m move to Spain in 2018 remains one of the biggest in football history. But he has struggled so much for Barcelona that he has occasionally been booed by his own fans.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo reported (via Birmingham Mail) that both Barcelona and Coutinho hope to negotiate a permanent exit from the Nou Camp this summer
