The Brazilian has not played in either of the Liverpool's matches since the transfer window opened at the start of the month because of a minor thigh problem but manager Jurgen Klopp expects the 25-year-old to be fit for next Sunday's visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The deal will make Coutinho the second most expensive playeer ever, behind only Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona last summer for £200 million.

Barcelona said Coutinho will sign a contract for the rest of the ongoing season and five more seasons.

Meanwhile, Inter Milan will miss out on a huge financial windfall as they did not insert a sell-on clause when they sold Coutinho to Liverpool in January 2013, a source told ESPN FC in August.

Speculation has been growing about a renewed bid of potentially £140million for Coutinho from Barcelona, who had three offers rejected - the last totalling £118m - in the summer.

Manufacturing sector shows record growth in December
China's manufacturing sector continued to expand in December, pointing to economic resilience in the country's factory sector. The survey found production and new orders were only slightly lower than in November but at 54 and 53.4 showed steady growth.

"I can tell the Liverpool supporters that we, as a club, have done everything within our means to convince Philippe that remaining part of LFC was as attractive as moving to Spain, but he is 100 percent certain his future - and that of his family - belongs at Barcelona".

On announcing Couninho's signing, Barcelona hailed Coutinho as "a young player with potential still to be tapped".

The full five percent would not be allocated between Inter and Vasco, with Liverpool having Coutinho on their books since he was 20 years of age.
