Transfer news: Corinthians midfielder Paulinho refutes move rumours
16 June 2013 07:41
Corinthians midfielder Paulinho has rubbished reports claiming his agent is in England to discuss a summer switch.
The Brazil international concedes that his representative Giuliano Bertolucci has travelled to Europe to speak with Premier League clubs, but insists he is not the subject of those talks.
The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from his homeland, with Tottenham Hotspur said to be leading the chase for his signature.
Paulinho is, however, happy in his homeland and has no desire to try his luck elsewhere any time soon.
He told Terra on Bertolucci's visit to England: "He is not negotiating. Giuliano has many clients. I am not the only one.
"He is in England, admittedly, but he works for many players.
"They say that Giuliano is working for me to leave Corinthians, but that is not the case.
"He has his work with other players and I don't understand why people persist with this story."
