Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho has claimed that his agent is in talks with Barcelona over a potential move to the Catalan giants.
The Brazil international, who was at White Hart Lane between 2013 and 2015, is currently plying his trade in the Chinese Super League with Guangzhou Evergrande.
Barca are reportedly looking to make signings in a number of positions this summer ahead of the new season as they bid to bounce back from an underwhelming 2016-17 campaign.
Paulinho told Globoesporte: “There’s been contact with my agent. There’s an offer [from Barca], it’s true, and the two parties are talking. I’m really proud that a great club like Barcelona are interested in my situation – there is no price for that.
“At the moment I’m really happy with my life and with my career. When you’re in a situation like the one I’m in, it’s difficult to make a decision. There are a lot of things that I have to weigh up, one of them being my happiness.
“I think, first of all, the way things are with my partner here in China… We really like where we are, the people, how things are with the club, the success… The truth is that I don’t know [what to do].”
Paulinho made 67 appearances for Spurs, scoring 10 times.
