Andrea Pirlo insists Barcelona’s new signing Philippe Coutinho is worth €160million.

Coutinho was unvelied as a Barcelona player on Monday after swapping Liverpool’s Anfield for Camp Nou in a blockbuster transfer.

The former Italy, AC Milan and Juventus midfield maestro Pirlo said the price is justified after Liverpool spent €80m to sign Dutchman Virgil van Dijk from Southampton this month.

“Other than the crazy prices, the price of Coutinho is in line with the prices of today,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

“If Van Dijk is worth €80m then he costs double. It’s only fair.”
