Philippe Coutinho hasn't shown enough at Bayern München to justify his huge price tag, argues Dietmar Hamann.

Bayern have an option to buy the Barcelona loanee for €120 million at the end of the season, but the 27-year-old isn't worth that fee at all right now, according to the former German international.

"At this point, I wouldn't sign Coutinho on a permanent deal. Until now, he hasn't shown enough to justify a transfer fee of more than €100 million. At the moment, he's probably not even worth half of that," Hamann told t-online.de and continued:

"Coutinho is a sensitive player, and not everyone can play for Bayern München. That's a special club."

The Brazilian international has made 16 appearances for Bayern so far, racking up three goals and four assists.
