"I'm going to Barcelona to talk to my representative about this matter," he told reporters.

"I have an offer from China and another from another club, although it is not certain that I will go. We have to talk."

Although not always a guaranteed starter under Ernesto Valverde last season, Paulinho racked up 49 appearances for the LaLiga and Copa del Rey winners last season, scoring nine goals.
