SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID THINKING IN BRAZILIAN INTERNATIONAL PAULINHO ?

REAL MADRID THINKING IN BRAZILIAN INTERNATIONAL PAULINHO ?

This piece of news is doing the rounds in England ( "The Times" ) & locally in the Spanish Sports papers  Real Madrid it is written has set its "signing eyes" on Brazilian International & Corinthians midfielder Paulinho. The story gains weight & attracts further attention if the content mentions that the player is a signing asked specifically by the new Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti which makes Paulinho thus a priority.

REAL MADRID CF

Said & read all this, a Club like Real Madrid constantly attracts rumours, speculations & players of all types especially in the summer transfer months simply because its Real Madrid CF. It is true that Ancelotti maybe concerned with pivotal Real Madrid  midfielder Xabi Alonso who is under a "injury cloud" & may wish to have a "Plan B" up his sleeve. But Real Madrid has "overbooking" in the midfield area with Khedira, Modric , Isco & even young Casemiro. Granted they aren´t Xabi Alonso - no one is in World Football - there are all competent Football players. 

The only Club to date that has officially made an offer for Paulinho is English Club Tottenham Hotspurs which has put on the table 17,5M€. This does not mean that Real Madrid will not lift & bid higher, but the Spanish Club has other "bigger fish" to aim for like Tottemham star Gareth Bale whose price is around 80M€ & a centre forward with names like Cavani & Luis Suarez in the air that also have a price around the 50M€.

For the Real Madrid fans & followers I would recommend caution with this rumour & see how things develop. Paulinho may be finally signed by Real Madrid this is always a possibility but lets wait till the "fat lady sings". Summer is a terrible period for Football rumours.
