Bayern Munich have struck a deal with FC Barcelona for the services of Philippe Coutinho on a season-long loan, APA reports citing Deutche Welle. 

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told German broadcaster ZDF on Friday: "I can confirm that (club chairman) Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and I were in Barcelona this week and have reached a consensus with FC Barcelona, the player and the agent. We had very good talks and I also want to thank FC Barcelona."

Barcelona playmaker has struggled since moving to the Camp Nou 18 months ago. Bayern see him as an ideal acquisition following the departures of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
