Philippe Coutinho is costing £563,000 a game at Bayern Munich

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are paying Philippe Coutinho is an eye-watering £563,000 a game, according to reports from German news outlet Bild.

The 27-year-old joined Bayern in the summer on a loan deal from FC Barcelona on an annual wage of £21m as well as the £7m loan fee.

According to Bild, the total amount took into consideration all the games Bayern has played this season; the German Cup matches all included in the calculations.

Bayern has an option to make the move permanent on a £100m next summer as a part of the loan agreement with Barcelona said not to be keen on having the player back at Camp Nou.

Since his arrival in Germany, the Brazilian has scored two goals and provided three assists for Bayern in the eleven games he has played for them.

The player has however been relegated to the bench in Bayern’s latest games with the team struggling in the league where they are placed third on the log with 21 points; four points below leaders Monchengladbach.
