Guangzhou Evergrande reject approach from Barcelona for Paulinho

Guangzhou Evergrande announce that they have turned down an approach from Barcelona for midfielder Paulinho.

Barcelona have failed with an approach to sign Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho.

Last month, it was reported that the Catalan giants were interested in pulling off the surprise transfer of the Brazilian international, who has previously endured a disappointing spell with Tottenham Hotspur.

However, the Chinese Super League side have announced that they have no intention of allowing the 28-year-old to leave the club.

A statement read: "Paulinho, having already renewed his contract in January 2017, is an important player for our club's long-term project.

"Therefore, our club have given a formal response to the Barcelona football club that we reject their bid for Paulinho, who is not in our transfer plan whatsoever.

"We'd like to express our gratitude to Barcelona who have reserved a high degree of admiration for Paulinho."

During his time in Asia, Paulinho has netted 27 goals in 89 appearances for the league champions.
