Philippe Coutinho states Barcelona move is a dream come true

Brazil Midfielder,  Philippe Coutinho,  says his move to Barcelona is a "dream come true" before his official presentation at the Nou Camp.

The 25-year-old is set to join the Spanish giants after a  £142million deal was agreed with Liverpool on Saturday.

He took part in a brief photo session at the Nou Camp after Barcelona's 3-0 success against Levante on Sunday.

Coutinho will officially sign his contract at 11:30 GMT on Monday before being presented to the public.

"Hi Barca fans, I am already here, it is a dream come true and I hope to see you tomorrow, " he said in a video message on Twitter.

Later, in an interview with BarcaTV, Coutinho added he was excited to be soon playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

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

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