WATCH Ray Hudson welcomes Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona with brilliantly bizarre song

Coutinho will join Suarez and Lionel Messi in the luxury suburb of Castelldefels - a moment's walk from the beach and 49-minute drive to the Nou Camp.

"Now we need to make sure he feels at home because we know that changing club is always hard, but I think he is the type of player who will fit well into the team".

The Anfield-based outfit will be offering a £50 voucher to each and every fan who purchased Liverpool's 2017/18 home, away, or third shirt with "Coutinho 10" on the back, from club stores across United Kingdom and Ireland as well as the official LFC website.

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

While Neymar was a good friend on that occasion by encouraging him to make the move, the forward was a little more mischievous during Coutinho's unveiling.

His compatriot sensationally left Barca for French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain for a world record 222 million euros a year ago.

"I play with Neymar in the national team and we have been friends since we were kids", Coutinho said, as quoted by AS.

Barcelona had tried to sign Coutinho last summer and his departure is a blow to Liverpool as he had just returned to top form after an injury-hit start to the season, scoring seven goals in the last eight games of 2017 to put his side firmly in the Champions League places. "I also want to thank Liverpool and their fans for understanding it was a dream to come to FC Barcelona".

"I was always clear from the beginning that I wanted to come here and I want to thank everyone who understood what my desire was", he said.

"When I was young I would watch Ronaldinho play, I would watch him give magic".

Barcelona agrees to sign Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho for $192 million in the third most expensive deal of all time. "He's an important signing". I have seen him play in various positions - on the right, the left, in the middle, on the wings.

"Coutinho is a player who I think can bring a lot to us", said Valverde.
