Paulinho Might Not Be Allowed To Join Barcelona -Luiz Felipe Scolari

share on:

Luiz Felipe Scolari has played down speculation Paulinho will join Barcelona during the summer transfer window as finding a replacement for the former Tottenham Hotspur man would be too expensive.

Guangzhou Evergrande manager Luiz Felipe Scolari believes the midfielder’s proposed move to the Camp Nou is unlikely as new Chinese Super League transfer regulations make it too expensive to find a replacement.

“His release clause is €40m (£35.1m) and none of the Chinese clubs will let their key players go because it would be difficult and expensive to find a replacement due to the new rules,” the Brazilian coach told reporters.

Paulinho’s form has attracted the attention of Barca, but with new regulations in place governing the fees paid by Chinese clubs for foreign talent prompting them to halt their spending in the current transfer window, Scolari does not believe Guangzhou will be prepared to allow Paulinho to leave.
