Liverpool could miss out on Coutinho fees Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona may have come at a cost, with the Reds set to miss out on around €25 million (£21.7m) if Philippe Coutinho is sold by the Spanish champions this summer.

Liverpool will receive €15m (£13m) in prize money from Uefa for reaching the Champions League final, and will pick up an extra €4m (£3.47m) in prize money if they can beat Tottenham in Madrid on June 1.

Barca signed Coutinho from Liverpool in January last year for an initial €120m (£104.1m) deal plus an additional €40m (£34.7m) in variables.

On top of that, Barca will be due to fork out an additional €20m (£17.35m) when Coutinho makes it to 100 appearances, plus €5m (£4.33m) if he the Catalans claim the Champions League title while he is at Camp Nou.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have paid just €15m (£13m) in add-ons so far: €5m (£4.33m) after he reached 25 games for the club and a further €10m (£8.67m) for helping the team secure Champions League qualification in his two seasons at Camp Nou.

A summer sale would mean Barca would not need to pay that additional €20m, while the Catalans will not owe the final €5m to the Reds either, having failed to win the Champions League during his time at the club.

Meanwhile, Barca took home €12m (£10.4m) from Uefa for making it to the last four.
