OFFICIAL: Barcelona sign Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande

OFFICIAL: Barcelona sign Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande. The player’s buy clause is set at 120 million euros.

Paulinho will undergo a medical on Thursday and the signing of the contract and the official presentation of the new FC Barcelona player will also take place on Thursday. 

The Brazilian, who has been with Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande since 2015, has been a target for the Nou Camp club for much of the summer and has now completed his move.

Signing for Barcelona marks a return to European football for a 29-year-old who spent two seasons at White Hart Lane, without hitting the heights expected of him following a £17 million switch from Corinthians.

He played 67 times for Spurs during those two seasons, scoring 11 times, but was eventually sold for a fee of around £10million as he headed to China in the summer of 2015.

Paulinho has been described as a box-to-box midfielder, with powerful running and good movement into the box. He possesses the ability to push his side forward from midfield to supplement his strong defensive work. Paulinho also offers a useful presence in set piece situations at both ends of the pitch.
