His quality of play suggest that he will soon be plying trade for a top European club in the near future.


The Corinthians midfielder Paulinho has made a fan following for himself in Europe with his powerful displays making him a firm fan favourite.

His displays in last year's Club World Cup will have made scouts of different European clubs take notice of his talent. 

He partners Chelsea's Ramires in international matches and could well join the Stamford Brigde outfit this summer. 

Apart from Chelsea, Inter Milan, Manchester City and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in the dynamic midfielder and the player having won everything in his home country might look for a foreign challenge.
