    Whoop-de-fucking-do. Should we sign the MLS's best tackler while we're at it as well?

    If we draw PSG in the CL, we should put Paulinho on Neymoolah with instructions to kick the shit out of him.

    He won't. He's going to warm the bench. If Valverde isn't in on this the Paulinho will hardly play.

    If we manage to get Dembele and Coutinho most people will get over the Paulinho signing pretty quick.

    We coul have had Seri, younger, cheaper, better fit...i can't get over this, it just doesn't make any sense.

    Sorry but this is such a wrong way of thinking, basicaly you are saying sign who ever you want just bring main targets, even if this mean another dead wage player, less playing time for youngsers, and probably selling one of them, on a long terms things are looking very bad, i just hope socios will not vote again for this destroyer of a club

    Why is this transfer triggering people so much? Let's put aside Bartomeu - Adelte Group shenanigans until we see elaborate evidence for it and look at this from strictly football position:

    1. 40m€ isn't anywhere near top money in todays market. You may not like the direction where modern football is going, but now 30-40 m is what top clubs pay for squad players (not elite stars). In 2008. it was 15m paid for Keita, in 2017. you splash 40m on Paulinho to fill in the same role.

    2. Barca does lack that particular skillset in its roster now. An agile, box-to-box tireless runner capable of physically harrassing opponents 90 mins (Rakitić is as close as you have and he really isn't intimidating as a defender) and Paulinho already proved he certainly can deliver great performances (anyone remember how he RAVAGED Iniesta in Confederations Cup final 2013?). He's not a flashy player for sure, but he could end up being Barca's Casemiro yet.

    Paulinho won't define Barca's business in this transfer window, but rather what will be done/not done with Neymar money to deal with LW/AM situation (that's where an absolutely top class elite player is expected). So chill out and wait to see how this transfer window unfolds.

    Mate, we got Paco, Gomes and Paulinho now. That's 110 mil. thrown on nothing in last year.

    Why is it triggering people?

    - midfield problems for a few years now, no WC signing
    - 13.08, signed Semedo and Deolofeu,
    - First signing after Neymar departure, is Paulinho
    - 29 years old, will get a 4 or 5 year contract
    - 40m for a player from chinese league, while Seri would cost less and is younger

    If this signing happened after Coutinho and Dembele were signed, the outrage wouldn't be as big, but in this very moment this transfer deserves outrage and frustration.
    We don't know if either of Coutinho and Dembele will happen, let alone both. Now imagine cashing in 222m and getting to 31.08 with the biggest signing beeing freaking Paulinho, or even worse, panic signing Di Maria in the end.
