Barcelona sign Paulinho for £36 million from Guangzhou Evergrande
Barcelona have signed former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho for £36 million and is Barcelona’s first signing after the world-record sale of Neymar to PSG.
Paulinho’s Career Revival
Paulinho was one of the players bought by Tottenham after the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but he struggled to find his feet in England.
Guangzhou Evergrande bought him for just £10 million.
In China, he established himself as one of the best players in the league, thus earning a recall to the Brazilian national team.
He recently scored a hat-trick for Brazil against Uruguay while on international duty.
He will be unveiled on Thursday, a day after the second leg of Barcelona’s Supercopa de Espana match against Real Madrid.
