FC Barcelona join Bayern in race to sign Paulinho: Reports

IANS logoIANS 14-04-2017

Paulinho's agent, Giuliano Bertolucci, has been contacted by the officials of the Catalan football giants following the 28-year-old's hat-trick in Brazil's 4-1 victory over Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier last month, reports Xinhua news agency.

Bayern Munich and AC Milan have also made inquiries to Bertolucci, according to Brazil's Uol news service, which cited unnamed sources with knowledge of the negotiations.

Paulinho has scored 10 goals in 67 matches for Guangzhou since joining the Chinese club from Tottenham Hotspur in 2015.

Under the coaching of former Brazil chief trainer Luiz Felipe Scolari, Paulinho has helped Guangzhou win two consecutive Chinese Super League (CSL) titles.
