Paulinho unlikely to complete Barcelona move - Scolari

Paulinho unlikely to complete Barcelona move - Scolari”

"I'm very happy where I am now and the way my career is going", said Paulinho, who was recalled to Brazil's national team after a two-year absence last year.

But he was proud to discuss an approach from Barca, even though he concedes their interest could leave him with a hard decision to make.

The 28-year-old has had a chequered career, outstanding nearly everywhere he's been bar a spell in the Premier League, with the North London club Tottenham Hotspur, where he was a major disappointment.

"I have to weigh up many things before making a decision, first of all my wife, plus I'm living very well in China".

The news will also come as a worry for the China sceptics as the Brazilian is now is an example of how moving to Asia is not the symbolic end of a career, nor the end of a player's chances of playing worldwide football. One of the critical factors is my happiness.

"Secondly I've gained self-confidence here". But talks have progressed nicely, and the player himself confirmed there's an offer on the table for him to join Los Blaugranas.

As a result, the summer transfer window - which opened last Monday - has been unusually quiet, with no new foreign signings joining the country's top flight sides after a glut of purchases in previous windows.

A club which spends less will still need to pay the registration fee, but it will be returned to be spent on their youth academy as officials seek to stop clubs from paying inflated transfer fees for players. I haven't been given a date to give my reply; I speak to my agent every day. "There is no deadline for me to say yes or no, even because there has to be a conversation between Barcelona and Guangzhou, but the main answer is mine".

Barcelona believe they can capture his signature at a lower price if the player puts pressure on his club to cash in.

Six minutes later, the other two Brazilian helped the host to expand the lead to 2-0 as Alan scored from Paulinho's free kick, which hit the defensive wall.
