Brazil star rejects Chelsea transfer talk

Brazil international Paulinho has denied he is set for a move to Premier League leaders Chelsea.

The Corinthians star was reported to be the possible subject of a bid from Blues owner Roman Abramovich this week, but his manager, Tite, publicly denied any move was on the table.

Now Paulinho himself has come out to dismiss any talk of a move, claiming there had been no formal contact between his club and Chelsea.

“It is just speculation, there is nothing official,” he is quoted as saying by ESPN.

A move to Stamford Bridge would come as something of a surprise, considering the summer spending spree sanctioned by Abramovich.

Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo now has a wealth of creative midfielders at his disposal since the arrival of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Paulinho’s compatriot Oscar, adding to the stars already in the squad, such as Juan Mata and Frank Lampard.

Paulinho also recently signed a new contract at Corinthians, so Abramovich would likely have to spend another large fee to secure the services of the highly-rated midfielder.

Chelsea are doing well with the players they have at the moment and are sitting at the top of the league, having not lost a game yet.
