Tottenham target Paulinho has denied rumours he has an offer to join Real Madrid this summer.
The Corinthians midfielder once more showcased his abilities by scoring the winner in Brazil's Confederations Cup 2-1 semi-final win over Uruguay last night.
Paulinho admitted earlier this week that he was honoured to be linked with a move to Tottenham, but the latest rumours suggest the north London club face a fight to keep their man out of the clutches of Real Madrid and Chelsea.
The 24-year-old confirmed he has an offer on the table from Spurs and no one else - and maintained that he would only make a decision over his future after the competition's final on June 30.
The box-to-box midfielder got the seal of approval from Chelsea defender David Luiz following his fine performance that helped set up a final appearance against either Spain or Italy last night.
Paulinho is a fantastic player, both defending and attacking," Luiz told Goal.
"He is complete, so he can come to England. It's a great moment for him."
