Conflicting Inter-Paulinho reports

There are conflicting claims in Brazil and Italy over whether Inter have agreed a deal for Corinthians star Paulinho.

According to Folha de Sao Paulo, the two clubs have already reached an agreement worth €16m after resuming talks that had been interrupted last year because the player wanted to stay for a little longer.

The Brazilian newspaper claims representatives from Inter and Corinthians met at Wembley for the Champions League Final to strike a deal.

However, other sources in Brazil insist there is no truth in this story, so the saga of the midfielder should continue into the summer.

“It will be easier to complete his transfer in June rather than now,” President Massimo Moratti had commented in January.

“It’s not a problem to do with money, it’s more to do with the player’s commitments to his club in his homeland.”
