With the Premier League transfer window getting ever closer it’s time for the press to dust off all those rumours that didn’t lead anywhere over the summer and start wheeling them out again so today we see the ‘Paulinho to Arsenal’ story getting a revival after the player found the net twice as his side, Corinthians, defeated Cortiba 5-1.
According to reports both Arsenal and Chelsea are still interested in the player but how likely is it that Arsenal will make a move? Well, it doesn’t really matter as the player himself has ruled out leaving his current club, saying
I want to stay here and play in Corinthians’ new stadium. There has been a lot of speculation, but they have mostly been lies. When there was a proposal I spoke honestly about what was happening.
I talked with my wife about possibly moving to Inter. Initially, I liked the idea of going there, but the directors of Corinthians did all they could to keep me.
It is important at certain times to think about money but other times you have to do what is best for you and your career.
So, dont’ let that get in the way press, you carry on with your stories.
