Barca Closing In On Third Signing?

By SL International - Aug 13, 2017 12:58 PM

FC Barcelona have been linked with a number of players, but the club are now reportedly closing in on their third transfer in the window.

Read: Reports: Barca To Offer Cash & Player For Coutinho

Following the shock departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee, Barca have been linked with a number players as a possible replacement.

According to Daily Mail, Guangzhou Evergrand midfielder Paulinho is set to join the Catalan giants, after the club triggered the player's €40million release clause.

The Chinese club confirmed they previously rejected an offer of  €22 million from Barca, but the La Liga have since upped their offer.

Barca head coach, Ernesto Valverde, meanwhile, remained tight-lipped about any new signings ahead of their match with Real Madrid.
 
"I don't have any proof of anything. Lots of players' names are mentioned for lots of clubs and it will be like that until August 31," Valverde told a media conference, according to FourFourTwo.
 
"For the moment there is nothing, or at least not that I've been informed of. I have a feeling that Paulinho will not be playing tomorrow night [against Madrid].

"I have no knowledge of what players could come or of what goes on at other teams. I don't worry about that as I have enough on my plate.

"The names that surface are not anyone's stated requests."
 
Paulinho has scored 26 goals in 89 appearances for the Chinese outfit, and was once again called up to the Brazil national team recently.

Ey Ernesto Valverde is really not looking at the bigger picture here, but oh well as long as if he delivers then why not? But I have major doubts about this player!
