Paulinho: I want to stay with Corinthians in 2013
Corinthians star Paulinho has dismissed claims that he is set for a January transfer to Italian giants Inter Milan.
The 24-year-old was a subject of interest from the Serie A side during the summer, but opted to remain in his homeland.
The Nerazzurri were expected to make a bid for the Seleção star this month, however, Paulinho, has revealed this is not the case.
The midfielder, who is currently taking part in the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan, has also insisted that he doesn’t expect to be heading to the peninsula any time soon.
He stated: "There has been no offer up to this point in time.
"Whether we win the Club World Cup or not, I want to stay with Corinthians in 2013. As it stands, I can say that I am staying."
Corinthians get their tournament underway on Wednesday when they take on Egyptian side Al Ahly in the semi-finals.
