Coutinho Reveals One Reason Why He Wanted To Join Barca

Philippe Coutinho, FC Barcelona's most expensive signing ever, has revealed one of the reasons why he was so desperate to join the Blaugrana.

Xavi Names Six Of The Best Players Of All Time

The 25-year-old became the world's second most expensive player ever in January when he completed his £142 million (R2.38 billion) move from Liverpool to the Camp Nou club.  

The Brazil international has now admitted that the chance to win silverware was a big factor in his decision to move to Spain.

"Everyone knows that I wanted to come to Barcelona," he told 8tv's Fora De Joc.

"It wasn't possible in the summer, but we worked so that it could be done in winter. I really want to win big titles, it was one of the reasons that made me sign for the club.

"I want to win as many as I can, I don't have preferences."
