Paulinho Reveals What Lionel Messi Said To Him Last Summer Before Transfer by sherifastro(m): 07:17 pm On 12 Dec 2017
Barcelona raised eyebrows when they paid
Chinese Super League club Guangzhou
Evergrande £36.4million (€40m) to sign Paulinho
in August.
The 29-year-old seemed a surprise choice to add
to new boss Ernesto Valverde's squad, especially
with the huge loss of Neymar to Paris Saint-
Germain.
But Paulinho has impressed in his first few
months at the Nou Camp and is the highest-
scoring midfielder in La Liga this season with six
goals.
And the Brazil international has opened up his
secret chat with Barca superstar Messi prior to
the move.
Brazil were playing Argentina in a friendly back
in June when Lionel Messi came up behind
Paulinho as he was lining up a free-kick and
spoke to him.
According to the MailOnline , Messi said: "So are
we off to Barcelona or what?"
Paulinho told him: "If you are going to take me
with you then I'll come."
He added: "In football you just never know
what's next.
"My representative called me and said: 'We are
talking to Barcelona '.
"My attitude was: 'When you have something
concrete then we'll sit down and decide if it is
right for me.
"I'm here in China and I don't need anything
crazy in my career right now'.
"It was crazy, but in a good way and he knew it.
'This is Barcelona we are talking about,' I kept
saying, 'This is not just any club'.
