Chelsea boss to bring £17 million Brazilian to Stamford Bridge

Chelsea have once again been linked with a move for Tottenham midfielder Paulinho, according to the Telegraph website

Jose Mourinho’s beaten Champions League semi-finalists have been made aware that the Brazilian would willingly quit Spurs to join them, just a year after his arrival at the White Hart Lane club for £17million.

The obvious benefit of signing Paulinho is that he has already had time to adapt to the Premier League, has the kind of energy essential to Jose Mourinho’s football, and is one of the few examples in the contemporary game of a ‘box-to-box’ style midfielder, something Chelsea will lose when Frank Lampard finally retires. © 2017 Frontier Theme
