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
