Out-of-favour Paulinho Pondering On Brazil Return

Tottenham midfielder, Paulinho is eyeing a move out of Tottenham and is seriously considering a move back to his homeland, Brazil in the winter transfer window. The 26-year-old has only been used sparingly at White Hart Lane this season. The 26-year-old has only featured once for the club in the premier league this season and seven times in all competitions.

It is looking increasingly clear that Paulinho does not feature in Mauricio Pochettino’s plan this season and the Brazilian is already contemplating a move back to Brazil. Speaking to Lance!, he said:

“I have always been sincere”!.

“A player always wants to play. You can see that I am playing few games at Tottenham. Maybe it’s time to look for the opportunity to go back.

He also revealed that a candidate for the presidency of Corinthians, Roberto de Andrad has shown interest in him:

“There is interest from Brazilian and European clubs, but nothing official yet. I’m glad to be recognised by Roberto de Andrad. I feel very proud.

“I always try to fulfil my contracts in the best way possible. Tottenham invested big money for my transfer. It might work out or not, as with any player. Today there is no way I think about a transfer because there are still two months until the next window opens.”

Paulinho joined Tottenham from Corinthians in the summer of 2013.

Paulinho has revealed he would consider a return to his native Brazil in January as he continues to struggle for regular first-team football at Tottenham.

The 26-year-old moved to White Hart Lane in a €20 million deal from Corinthians in the summer of 2013 but failed to consistently impress in a debut season characterised by managerial instability at Spurs.

And having made just seven appearances under Mauricio Pochettino this term – only one of which came in the Premier League – Paulinho admits the time may be right to go back to his homeland.

“I have always been sincere,” he told Lance!. “A player always wants to play. You can see that I am playing few games at Tottenham. Maybe it’s time to look for the opportunity to go back.

“There is interest from Brazilian and European clubs, but nothing official yet. I’m glad to be recognised by Roberto de Andrade [a candidate for the presidency of Corinthians]. I feel very proud.

“I always try to fulfil my contracts in the best way possible. Tottenham invested big money for my transfer. It might work out or not, as with any player. Today there is no way I think about a transfer because there are still two months until the next window opens.”
