The Corinthians midfielder has been tipped to make a £17million move to Tottenham and Luiz feels he has all the qualities required to make his mark in England.

Paulinho has impressed during the Confederations Cup, scoring the winning goal in the semi-final success against Uruguay which booked the hosts a place in the final against Spain on Sunday.

And Luiz would be more than happy to come up against his international team-mate in domestic action next term.

"If he gets to play in England, he will definitely go far", he told Fifa.com.

"His game fits perfectly with the pace of English football.

"It's incredibly valuable to have someone like that in your side. Especially when the team (Brazil) is getting along together as well as ours is."

Paulinho, whose future is expected to be decided following the Confederations Cup, spoke about the key strengths of his game in the wake of the tense semi-final success against Uruguay.

He said: "It really is one of my qualities, moving into different areas of the field, picking up opponents as well as helping to attack.

"I try to help in every possible way and I'll try to keep on doing that, both for my club and the national side, because that's how I've always had success."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
