Philippe Coutinho wants to stay at Bayern Munich beyond his 12-month loan agreement.

Philippe Coutinho is enjoying his stay in Munich. So much so he wants to stay there beyond his 12-month loan agreement.

When the loan deal expires, there is the option for Bayern to make the move a permanent one, with a 120 million Euro option to buy clause.

Nobody at the club has come out and said that this will or will not happen as yet.

While the player’s form has been by no means exceptional, all parties have expressed that they are happy with the way things are going so far.

The club though has been rather non committal on their part, with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge saying that there is plenty of time to make a decision and the club will not be rushed.

The player frequently stated that he is enjoying himself and he and his family have settled well.

However, now according to an interview with Marca, he has expressed his desire to stay long term,

He said:

“I’m very comfortable.”

“I plan to stay here for the year and I’m focused on my time here.”

“If everything fits, then I’d love to stay.”
