According to numerous reports these last days, ex-Tottenham player Paulinho has attracted the interest of several European clubs who would love to give him another chance in the ‘Old Continent’, but both the Brazilian and his current club made it clear that they intend to… stay together.
Guangzhou Evergrande deny that the club have received offers for Brazil international Paulinho
an official statement of the Chinese club read.
We have signed a contract extension with the player just last January, because we consider him an integral part of the club’s project
the statement also read, with Paulinho himself saying that he has no intention to leave Guangzhou.
It’s normal to have rumours in football, it’s part of how the whole industry works. My agent has received calls from several European clubs, but I’m happy with where I am, and my intention is to stay at Evergrande and win more trophies with the team
the Brazilian said, verifying that European clubs are interested in him, something, though, that is very different to ‘submitting official offers’ to Guangzhou. Paulinho, 28, joined the Chinese club two years ago, having spent two years at White Heart Lane.
