Scolari Bids Paulinho Farewell

Scolari Bids Paulinho Farewell

With Barcelona set to make the first major signing of the summer transfer window with Paulinho set to arrive in Spain to secure the deal, the manger of his previous club has bidden him farewell.

The Brazilian, as we mentioned in an earlier article, is set to sign for Barcelona for a fee of €40 million.

Sky Sports, in discussing the deal have used the following quotes from the Guangzhou Evergrande manager, the very well-respected Luiz Felipe Scolari,

'Paulinho is a player with high individual quality, he is an outstanding player, both for his club and for the national team.

'The high price paid by Barcelona in order to sign him is a strong recognition of Guangzhou Evergrande Football Club.

'We wish him all the best and that he can embrace a bright future."

In joining Barcelona, Paulinho ends a two-year stint in the Chinese Super League.

We await details of when Barcelona will unveil their latest acquisition.
