Paulinho’s future at Barcelona has taken an interesting turn in the last few days with reports in Spain claiming the club have received a big offer for his services.

The latest update claims that Juventus are keen on Paulinho, although it doesn’t sound like they are the club who have made the offer reported to be up to €50 million.

AS cite a report from Italian newspaper La Republica which reckons that Juve are willing to pay up to €40m for Paulinho although ideally they’d like to buy him for less.

Paulinho only arrived last summer in a €40m move from Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Further reports have claimed Paulinho and Barcelona are both mulling over the “super offer” which would see the club make a pretty decent profit on a player who will turn 30 later this month.
