Philippe Coutinho is reportedly one of three Bayern Munich loanees who have agreed to halve their wages in order to see out the season with the German champions.

The former Liverpool man made his first appearance since early March when he came on as a second half substitute in the 4-0 win at Wolfsburg on the final day of the season last Saturday. 

The Brazilian spent the coronavirus lockdown and the first few weeks of German football's restart recovering from ankle surgery, but he is now fit to take part in both the German Cup final and the latter stages of the Champions League. 

In order to compete in those matches the 28-year-old - who was earning over £200,000 a week at Bayern - has extended his loan spell from Barcelona until the end of August, joining Real Madrid's Alvaro Odriozola and Inter MIlan's Ivan Perisic in prolonging his stay by two months.
