FC Barcelona will not receive any funds from Philippe Coutinho’s transfer, since it is a loan. It’s strongly rumored that he will join Qatari side Al Duhail from Aston Villa.

Barcelona had reserved a 50% sell-on clause if Coutinho was sold for a fee by Villa, but that seemingly won’t be of any use.

The Catalans did receive 20 million euro for his transfer when he first left for Villa, which was a relief at the time. He had fallen out of favor at the club after a record breaking transfer. His high salary dictated that Barcelona had to ship him out.
