The Reds are to receive a payment of £4.4million from the Camp Nou club

Liverpool are set to profit from Barcelona as the La Liga champions must pay the first add-on clause written into Philippe Coutinho’s transfer to Camp Nou.

Coutinho, the Brazil international, left Anfield in the January transfer window for a reported £106million after a protracted transfer saga.

His career in Spain has started brightly, having scored 11 goals and created a further six in just 25 games, and Liverpool are now to enjoy a nice windfall on Coutinho, according to Sport.

Having made his 25th appearance for Barca in last week’s 1-0 defeat of Real Valladolid, the Catalan club now have to pay Liverpool £4.4million – the first add-on included in Coutinho’s transfer.

Should every add-on be met by Coutinho at Camp Nou Liverpool will receive a total £36million on top of the £106million base fee, with £17million of those clauses relating to appearances.

Liverpool are to receive £4.4million every time Coutinho makes 25 appearances for the club, with the final payment coming on the Brazil forward’s 100th appearance.

Liverpool also recently received a different payment of £4.4million as Barcelona qualified for the Champions League, and the same value must be paid by Barca should they win Europe’s premier cup competition.
