Barcelona Sign Paulinho From Guangzhou Evergrande For £36.5m

Barcelona have complete the signing of former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho for a fee of €40million (£36.5m).

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.

Barcelona opened with an offer of £17million in July but have since significantly increased their offer for the 29-year-old to complete the deal.

It marks a return to European football for a player 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.
