Barcelona star signs for Aston Villa

Barcelona is a top tier Spanish side with some of the greatest football history. The Spanish club has hosted stars like Leo Messi, Ronaldinho Gaucho, Ronaldo and Rivaldo. However, in recent times, the club’s situation has not been as it used to be as they are facing financial problems which is different from the previous years.

This problem caused the club to let go of its greatest player ever, Leo Messi. Others who also left were Carles Alena and Antoine Griezmann to clear their wage bill in order to meet the demands of the rules of the la liga. On that note, the team has been desperate in seeing off many of its players this winter transfer window.

One of the latest to be on the news is Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian international received an offer from English side Aston Villa days ago. Barcelona has accepted the loan deal and on that note, Coutinho will join Aston Villa on an 18 month loan and will take sixty five percent of the player’s salary.
