Jose Paulo Bezerra Maciel Junior, known as Paulinho, is hoping to finish his transfer to Camp Nou as soon as possible, writes Mundo Deportivo.
Guangzhou Evergrande has rejected a bid of 20m euros from Barcelona for the Brazilian, but the player hopes the club will soon sit down and talk to Barca.
“I was amazed that the club has not yet responded to Barcelona by coming out only at a press conference to reject the offer,” Paulinho said.
“I could not talk to the president of the club, but I hope that when Barcelona comes again, Guangzhou will solve everything and the transfer will be done as soon as possible.”
“It’s a unique opportunity to play in Barcelona, the best team in the world with the best players.”
“Since I’ve heard about Barcelona’s offer, I have not stopped thinking and I hope everything will be resolved within the week. I wanted the agent to do everything and as soon as possible to reach the deal,” he said.
