BARCELONA, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Barcelona's record signing Philippe Coutinho will not be able to make his debut for the club for about three weeks because of a thigh injury he sustained while at Liverpool.

The Brazilian playmaker passed a medical on Monday during which Barcelona doctors analysed the injury that kept him out of Liverpool's Premier League win over Burnley on Jan. 1.

Barcelona agreed a 142 million-pound ($192 million) deal with Liverpool on Saturday to buy Coutinho, who became their record signing.

"I am really happy, it's a dream and of course I am here thanks to many people," said Coutinho.

Coutinho's debut will have to wait because of his injury, but the player is anxious to make an impact at his new home.
