This Friday, FC Barcelona formalized the loan of Philippe Coutinho to Aston Villa. However, the file is not yet completely closed.

Seeking to build a new team that can allow the club to once again reach the heights of European football, FC Barcelona relies heavily on the transfer market. But to get stronger, the club must make a few starts in order to reduce its payroll. Therefore, Joan Laporta has placed several players on the transfer list and has already registered a first start with Philippe Coutinho. On its Twitter account, Aston Villa announced this Friday that it had reached an agreement with FC Barcelona for the loan with option to buy the Brazilian. However, the file would not yet be fully closed.

The file will not be closed until Tuesday

According to information from Cadena COPE, the agreement for the loan of Philippe Coutinho will only be completed this Tuesday. The Brazilian is said to be positive for Covid-19 and therefore could not travel to England at the moment. Sources close to the negotiations have also told the journalist of the Spanish media Helena Condis that as long as the 29-year-old attacking midfielder has not had his medical visit with Aston Villa , the file will not be closed. The future of Philippe Coutinho is therefore not yet completely fixed.
