    Would guess they were not looking for a young talented midfielder but experience and know what they are getting.

    Not really worth 40m but wouldnt be suprised if get a lot of that back in move back to China in couple years.

    Lucas Moura fee is no more relevant than 40m + flops from past two windows.

    There were better options if they wanted an experienced player. In the same window Matuidi went to Juventus for half the price of Paulinho and he is a much better midfielder and perfect for Vaverde's midfield as a second pivot.
    And I doubt you can get half of what you for him in a couple of years or even next summer.

    Matuidi plays nothing like Paulinho has at Barca or does for Brazil.

    Paulinho was not bought to play that second pivot role.

    Get half back on him after a couple decent years would be fine.

    They wanted a midfielder who provides balance and that's the opposite of what Paulinho does.

    Valverde played Paulinho more than once in a 3 MF configuration and in this case it is mandatory to provide balance otherwise you will create holes in midfield, which Paulinho does often.

    If you want to use Paulinho role in brazil NT you need to play with 4 MF to counterbalance his mouvements forward. Taking into consideration his quality he is not worth the sacrifice. Knowing that we already have a better suited player for this. Roberto.

    Paulinho will not go for more than 12M stop dreaming jamdav

    Like I've said in another thread. This is not a problem when Messi plays in the 4-3-3 because Messi becomes that extra body in midfield and they feed off each other.

    Can't wait for him to be introduced in the game. Watch out for the moments Valverde gives instruction to Paulinho.

    This might sound harsh, considering he wasn't on for long, but I thought he was really poor. Again. Really don't get the love for him.

    The love for him is quickly drying up as his goals start to disappear and people are forced to recognize how useless Paulinho is when he's not scoring, which is fine enough for a striker but not a midfielder.

    Tiĺl now I can't understand what is he doing in a top team like Barça. 99% of his play is basically simple pass to the nearest player and hide. Garbage like usual.

    He's like a ghost who making very decent runs off the ball and has perfected his arrival in the penalty area to perfection to score goals.

    Take that away and you have a very ordinary pkayer. He doesn't even like doing any dirty work and is a passenger most of the times.

    Bringing him on for Iniesta must have been Valverde’s craziest sub all season. We immediately lost control of the midfield.
