Chelsea linked Paulinho: New agent doesn't mean European move

Corinthians midfielder Paulinho has insisted that his recent change of agent does not indicate that he is looking to move abroad, despite his new management's well-known connections with Premier League giants Chelsea.

Paulinho, 24, is now represented by Giuliano Bertolucci, one of the biggest and most famous agents in Brazil. Known for his contacts in Europe, Bertolucci's clients include Chelsea-owned trio Oscar, David Luiz and Lucas Piazon, as well as former-Blue Alex.

The Corinthians midfielder, though, insists that it will be he who ultimately decides his own fate.

"He is working in partnership with Pão de Açúcar (owner of Audax-SP, who own 50% of Paulinho's economic rights)," the player told Globo Esporte. "There is no interference for me at all. He is a great agent who has made big deals, but we are just working in partnership. It's just to help me, not so I can leave Brazil.

"I have learned one thing: the player has the final word. So, if Giuliano or anyone brings me a proposal, I will have the final say.

"I have not received calls from anyone. In my career, everything has always happened naturally. I will stay here and play.

"If there is a proposal, I will be the first to come here and talk to you. However, my thought is to stay and achieve great success and give continuity to my work."
