Paulinho spoke about his future after Brazil were knocked out of the World Cup on Friday and admits he has offers to leave the Camp Nou.

Reports on Friday claimed his former club Guangzhou Evergrande are negotiating a €50 million deal with Barcelona.

Paulinho says there is an offer from China, and another from Europe, but that he hasn’t decided where he wants to play his football next season.

“I’m going to have a meeting with my representative and I’ll talk to him about my situation. I don’t know if China,” he said.

“There is an offer from there and a European club but I do not rule out staying at Barça.”

The rumors about Paulinho have come out of the blue and it’s a surprise to hear his former club are willing to spend €50m on him when they sold him for €40m last summer.

However, Barcelona need to free up a non-EU spot in their squad with Arthur now set to arrive this summer. It had appeared Yerry Mina would be allowed to leave but it now looks as though Paulinho might be on his way after just one season.
