Paulinho now wears the FC Barcelona jersey
The F.C. Barcelona has signed Paulinho for the new season 2017/18 and all the fans, who already made the purchase in advance of the tickets online to support his club, is waiting for how this Brazilian will adapt to the style of play Blaugrana.
The career of the midfielder
Paulinho was in several teams in Brazil for a short time; also with a team from Lithuania and another from Poland, but already for 2009 became part of the staff of the great Brazilian club Corinthians.
During his time with this team managed to give a boost to his career as a football player and add a few important championships to his record.
Play with the Spurs
By 2013, there were many European looks about him; Tottenham Hotspur signed him for 17 million euros and that was how he took off his career in Europe, having the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best in the Premier League.
From 2015 he was with a Chinese team, the Guangzhou Evergrande, a club with which he played 63 games and won the Chinese League three times.
Next, to Tottenham, he was considered the best player of the second day of the Premier League during the season 2013/14.
He signed it
Now, during the summer of signings this year, the F.C. Barcelona has announced that the midfielder is their new player, after an agreement of 40 million euros and a contract termination clause that will be around 120 million.
However, some fans do not seem very happy with the incorporation of the Brazilian to the bench of the Camp Nou, as they say, that does not fit the plans of the Barca.
Will Paulinho fit the Camp Nou?
Already started the season, the Catalan team has been very successful, now with the hand of their new DT.
Valverde has opted for an alignment with ‘false 11’ and ‘false’ 9, in which Messi has been very solid and balanced.
The arrival of Paulinho could be good due to the versatility offered by the midfielder; unlike Casemiro, who always plays in his fixed place, Paulinho can take the positions that Valverde entrusts to him, and do it of effective form.
It is necessary to remember that all these changes have been the fruit of the departure of Neymar during this summer, reason why the 4-3-2 is no longer the first option for the club.
Valverde made sure that Ousmane Dembele did not bear all the responsibility of covering the gap left by Neymar, and so far this has worked because Messi and Suárez were able to make their moves on the left side and Dembele took the right.
Paulinho stated during his official presentation to the press that he knows that he will soon be adapted to the style of the Barca, and said that if it was not so the club had not signed.
The main characteristics that make Paulinho an option for Barcelona are their mobility and pressure from the opponent, handles well in the back and forth on the field, his good shot from the second line and his power and accuracy to score.
