Liverpool Make £136.5m Profit …On Coutinho Move
Philippe Coutinho Unveiling
Despite losing their prized asset this week, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for Liverpool following Philippe Coutinho’s sensational move to Barcelona.
The Brazilian’s dream £145million switch to the Spanish giants has seen the Reds make a tidy profit on a player they signed from Inter Milan in 2013.
With Coutinho relatively unknown at the time, Brendan Rodgers parted with £8.5m to sign the Brazilian and he went on to become a fans’ favourite at Anfield.
Five years after his arrival and Liverpool’s bank balance is now £145m heavier — but they aren’t the only club who can boast a huge mark-up.
In fact, Barcelona won’t worry too much about forking out on Coutinho as they made an even larger profit when selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
So, which other clubs have been involved in the biggest transfer profits? And who tops the list
