"For me, this signing means a new challenge in a new country at one of the best clubs in Europe, I'm very motivated," said the playmaker.

"I'm not a person who likes talking about myself but I like to play in the middle of the pitch and create chances to score.

"Although I don't really know the city, my first feelings, the treatment I've received from those I've met, has been really polite and respectful."

In comments to Bayern's website he added: "I can't wait to put on the shirt and start to play."

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: "Coutinho left it very clear that during the negotiations with Barcelona, he wanted to sign for Bayern without a doubt.

"He's a world class player of exceptional quality who can play in different positions in attack."
