Paulinho reiterates desire to stay at Corinthians
Corinthians' Paulinho has reiterated his desire to stay at the club in the wake of the club's Club World Cup victory over Chelsea.
Paulinho played a starring role in their 1-0 win courtesy of a Guerrero winner in the second half and says he is not leaving Brazil just yet.
"I’m staying with Corinthians," Paulinho told Esporte iG. "There was a lot of speculation that I could be leaving and there were indeed some talks, but I wasn’t aware of anything concrete. Except from Inter."
Chelsea and Inter have registered their interest in the highly rated 24-year-old but Corinthians will be delighted that the midfielder is set to stay for the forseeable future.
Paulinho has already established himself in the Seleção forming a partnership with Tottenham's Sandro in the centre of midfield.
