Talks between Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho and FC Barcelona are entering a decisive moment. The Brazilian international has decided to leave China and is waiting for a final offer of 25 million euros to open the door to his return to European football.
Paulinho, according to information on esporte.uol.com.br, is more excited than ever about the chance to move to Barça after Neymar expressed his happiness and desire for his "friend" to join him at Camp Nou.
Last week saw Guangzhou reject an offer worth 20 million euros from Barça. In addition, everyone at the Chinese club say that they do not want to lose Paulinho at a critical moment during the Chinese Super League season.
Paulinho, meanwhile, has also sought references about FC Barcelona, the city and the other players. And he is even more excited at the prospect of leaving China to play for the Catalan club. However, he knows that Guangzhou's hieracrchy and coach Luiz Felipe Scolari are not going to facilitate his departure easily.
