Paulinho: Happy at Corinthians and has no desire to move on

Speculation continues to suggest the Brazil international is a January target for clubs across Europe.

Inter Milan are known to have made an approach in the past, while the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea are said to be keen.

Paulinho is aware of the speculation, but sees no reason why he would want to move on.

He helped Corinthians to claim the title of best club side on the planet on Sunday, beating Chelsea in the final, and insists he has no intention of leaving his homeland any time soon.

"I'm staying at Corinthians," he told Esporte iG.

"There were lots of rumours that I could possibly leave the club, that there are talks, but I have never been aware of anything concrete, apart from Inter Milan, which everyone knows about.

"The more titles you win, the more you want to win. That's what everyone says, and I say that too."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
