It sounds almost to good to be true but it seems as if Paulinho will move to Guangzhou Evergrande, with the fee rumoured to be around £15m-£17m.
For Tottenham to get their money back on a player that has failed spectacularly at White Hart Lane would be an astonishing result. For Paulinho, it’s a step down but we’re sure the rumoured salary of £90,000 a week will ease the pain. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.
Has Paulinho left yet? £15m Spurs would be stupid not accept that

Paulinho's move to China proves that he come to the UK for money. See you later mate. Not one Spurs fan will miss you.

Paulinho is the worst footballer I've ever fucking seen. Why's he getting a pay rise?

We can celebrate that Paulinho is going but let's not let that overshadow the party when holtby leaves as well

We all need to stop mugging Paulinho off. Someone in China is gonna get wind of it, look at his 'highlights' of 14/15 & call the deal off

Last year Real Madrid wanted Paulinho and now apparently is off to China. The guy is a decent player.
