Madrid enter Paulinho hunt

Real Madrid are reportedly in competition with a number of clubs for the signing of Brazilian international midfielder Paulinho.

The Corinthians man has previously been paired with Chelsea and Inter in recent months and most recently has been seen as the subject of talks for Tottenham Hotspur.

It is also reported that Spurs have placed an offer of €17.4m to try and pick up the midfielder, who is currently on international duty with Brazil at the Confederations Cup.

However, The Times report that Carlo Ancelotti is also keen to look at Paulinho, for his Madrid side, and has requested that Los Merengues take a look at entering the bidding too.
