The former Tottenham Hotspur flop is reportedly poised to join the Catalan club in a shock transfer and has now hinted at the completion of a deal

Paulinho has dropped a social media hint that he is set to complete a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

'I know Cristiano Ronaldo is angry'

The former Tottenham midfielder ‘liked’ a photoshopped picture of him wearing the Catalan giants’ shirt on Instagram.

Goal understands that Barca have opened talks with Paulinho ahead of a potential move, and Guangzhou Evergrande coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has opened the door for the transfer.

"We have already talked and he knows my position. If the time comes when I have to make a statement or express my opinion about the issue of Paulinho, I will do so," he told ESPN Brasil.

“I'm sure Paulinho will make the decision that's best for him."
