Guangzhou set Paulinho ultimatum?

Guangzhou Evergrande have reportedly told Barcelona to pay Paulinho’s €40m release clause or forget signing the midfielder.

According to Sport, Barca have already offered €25m for Paulinho, with a further €2m in variables, but Guangzhou have made it clear that only €40m will do.

It now remains to be seen whether the Catalans will allocate such a considerable part of their budget to the former Tottenham Hotspur man.
