Official: Barca sign €40m Paulinho

Barcelona have confirmed they have signed Brazilian international Paulinho on a four-year contract from Guangzhou Evergrande for €40m.

The Catalan giants announced the deal on Monday and confirmed the midfielder would have a €120m release clause inserted into his contract.

On Sunday, Guangzhou boss Luis Felipe Scolari confirmed the 29-year-old would be leaving the club to move to the Camp Nou.

A regular in Brazil’s team – scoring nine international goals in 41 caps – Paulinho was said to be a Barca target in 2013, but by that stage he already had an agreement in place to join Tottenham from Corinthians.

Since moving to China in 2014, Paulinho has helped his side to six trophies whilst strengthening his position in the Brazil national team.

Described as a box-to-box midfielder, he is the Blaugrana’s third signing of the summer following deals for Gerard Deulofeu and Nelson Semedo.
