Coutinho: I am living a dream

Brazilian looks forward to playing with Barcelona legends…

The 25-year-old’s move from Anfield will cost Barcelona £142m, making Coutinho the world’s second most expensive player after fellow Brazilian Neymar.

“I am very happy. I have always said I am living a dream, we are very happy to be here,” he told the club’s official website. “To be able to play football, win titles, make the fans happy and play with a smile. These are the objectives.”

Coutinho looked happy as he wore the club’s colours for the first time on Sunday ahead of today’s official unveiling to the public.

“It is incredible to know I will be around idols, with players who have such a great history like Leo, Luis, [Andres] Iniesta, [Gerard] Pique, [Sergio] Busquets… all the great players.

“I am very happy to know I will be playing with them and I hope to be able to learn, live and win together.”
