Coutinho Excited to Become a Barcelona Player

Coutinho Excited to Become a Barcelona Player

With the deal to bring Philippe Coutinho to the Camp Nou done and dusted far earlier in the month of January than we expected, we`re all waiting to see the Brazilian in action.

Coutinho, who signed a five-and-a-half year deal with the club, with Barcelona paying Liverpool the third highest transfer fee in history, a cool £142 million, has used his Twitter account to declare his excitement at joining the biggest club in the world, remarking,

'Hi Barca fans, I am already here, it is a dream come true and I hope to see you tomorrow."

Continuing on the same theme, Coutinho then gave an interview to Barcelona TV whereby he further remarked,

'It is incredible to know that I am going to live with idols, players with a lot of history.

'Footballers like Leo Messi, Luis Suarez, Iniesta, Pique, Busquets.

'I am very happy to be able to live together, to be able to learn from them and be able to win together.'

Coutinho, 25-years-of-age, will officially sign his Barcelona contract at 11:30 GMT and be paraded before the worlds media.

Welcome to Barcelona a fine club and a fine city.
