Messi, Suarez and Paulinho on target in routine Barca win

La Liga Messi Suarez steer Barca to 3-0 win Real Madrid held to a draw by Celta Vigo

FC Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez, who is a former Liverpool player himself, has commented on Philippe Coutinho's move to the Catalan giants.

"He saw that a house next to his became available". "I'm very happy, this is a dream come true for me and I hope to live up to the expectations".

Moving in with wife Aine and children Maria and Philippe Jr, Coutinho said: "He didn't know I was coming for certain but he liked the idea".

Coutinho's debut is weeks away, however, after the Blaugrana confirmed a thigh injury will keep him out for 20 days.

Not so long ago, it was Neymar trying to persuade his worldwide team-mate to join him at the Catalan club, and although the two men will not be colleagues at Camp Nou after the former Santos forward left for Paris Saint-Germain in August, it is that transfer that ultimately led to this one.

"We're different players. He is obviously a great player but we have different qualities".

The swoop for Coutinho - which contains a 400 million-euro release clause - is the third-biggest transfer in football history, reported AFP.

Norishige Kanai: Astronaut Grows 3.5 Inches in 3 Weeks in Space
Astronauts do tend to "grow" while in space, although growing 9cm in three weeks would be highly unusual. Mr Kanai said he was a "bit relieved", adding: "I'll probably fit into the Soyuz when I go home".

The pair will link up again following their time together at Anfield and Liverpool supporters are struggling to cope with the sight of them both in Barcelona gear.

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

The 25-year-old is expected to be formally unveiled to the adoring Barca public on Monday, and Valverde is looking forward to working with his new addition.

"We will have to welcome him as best we can so he feels at home".

"We will evaluate all of this. but, of course, I don't think he will play as a goalkeeper!"

He said: "I spoke to Neymar and he has nothing but good things to say about the team, the city and the dressing room".

Coutinho showed at Liverpool that he can play anywhere in the midfield: in a more attacking role, as a wide player in a four-man line, or deeper to help start the attack.
