Koeman and the Barcelona board are still working to remove high earning squad players from their wage bill and a loan exit would provide a temporary solution to the Coutinho situation.

According to the Daily Mail, both clubs are open to a six-month loan offer, but Barcelona would be required to pay half of his rumoured £200,000 per week salary during the loan period, with no confirmation on a purchase clause being included.
