Bayern admit clause wont be activated as Chelsea open talks to seal £110 million deal?
Bayern Munich have opened the door for Chelsea to sign Philippe Coutinho by declining to pay a £110million option to buy the Barcelona playmaker.
The football world has been stopped over the past few months because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, but that has not stopped constant speculation in the media about possible signings that could be arriving to the club, and players that could be leaving.
Frank Lampard is no fool and knows that this side are a few signings away from challenging for titles and that he is why he is reportedly keen to try and acquire the services of Coutinho.
But reports in the media over the past few days have claimed that Barcelona have offered Philippe Coutinho to the us ahead of the summer window, as the Spanish giants are keen to get rid of the Brazilian, who has not made the impact that many had hoped when he signed from Liverpool.
Now twe have been handed a fresh boost after Bayern came out over the past few days and told the media that they will not be looking to activate the clause that is in the contract of Coutinho.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Der Spiegel: “The option expired and “we haven’t activated it.
“Now we’re going to draw up squad planning internally (for next season) and we’ll see if he still has a role to play with us or not.”
Look, There will be talk about this deal for months and we have constantly stated that he will be a good signing, so since Bayern done want him (There loss) it would be a crime for us not to wrap up a deal.
Liverpool dont want him back, Arsenal are useless and Spurs wont have the money, so the only logical move for Coutinho is the Bridge.
