Barcelona to pay Liverpool an amount of €5m (£4.5m) since Philippe Countinho won the Champions League with Bayern Munich on Sunday.
Coutinho came in as a second-half substitute  defeating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Brazilian who is on loan at Bayern, moved to Barca from Liverpool for a fee around £142m in 2018.

After failing to impress with the LaLiga side, he moved to the Bundesliga team, where he helped them win a Treble this season.

Coutinho scored twice against his parent club, Barcelona, during the 8-2 win last Friday.

The deal to sign Coutinho from Liverpool included a number of potential add-on clauses which are player-specific.

One of those clauses was that Barca would pay Liverpool €5m if the 26-year-old won the Champions League in either the 2018/2019 or 2019/2020 season, but it does not specify that it had to be while playing for them.
