The Paulinho situation takes another twist, as Corinthians insist “we have not received any offers” from Inter, Roma or Tottenham.
The Brazilian midfielder is hot property on the transfer market and has a €20m price-tag on his head.
Spurs appeared to leap to the top of the race when Paulinho confirmed his agent “is in London.”
However, Corinthians President Mario Gobbi Filho told Folha de Sao Paulo today “so far we have not received any offers for Paulinho.”
This doesn’t mean the player’s agents aren’t necessarily in preliminary talks with various clubs around Europe.
