Barcelona Ace Paulinho Complete Shocks Return To Guangzhou Evergrande (Details)

Barcelona Midfielder Paulinho has returned to Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande just one season after joining the Camp Nou.

The 30-year-old had a good season with Barcelona and held a first team place in Tite's Brazil Team at the World Cup in Russia.

But Barca have been keen to free up a non-Eu spot in their squad as they look to complete a deal for Gremio's Arthur.

Also, the La Liga club have been linked with Chelsea's Willian in recent weeks.

On Sunday Evening, Guangzhou confirmed they have reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign Paulinho on an initial one-year loan.

The deal is said to include a mandatory option to buy at the end of the loan for £44m - which is more than Barcelona paid for him 12 months ago.

Speaking about the transfer, Paulinho told the Club's official website:

'The level of the Chinese Super League has improved year on year and the development prospects are very good.

'After training in Evergrande and Barcelona, and following the Brazilian team at the World Cup, I got a good experience.

'I choose to return to the Super League this time, hoping to bring more championships to Guangzhou and its fans.'

Paulinho joined Guangzhou from Tottenham in 2015, scoring 22 goals and providing five assists in 84 matches for the Chinese Super League club.
