Italian side Roma want to take Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho on an initial loan deal, according to reports.

If, and i dont think we are, looking to move him on I think we could get a fee for him after the world cup.
I hope we dont get rid of him. He hasnt had a good season, and the goal against West ham was shocking, but I want to see what the new manager can get out of him

Sounds like a load of bollocks to me. Why would we even consider loaning Paulinho ?

If we can make a decent profit on him after the World Cup, I'd lose no sleep over us selling him. I don't think he's worth the £17m we paid for him, let alone the sort of money that it would take for Levy to sell him for.

We'd be daft to do anything until whoever the new manager has cast an eye over him. I can see him fitting in with any of the three supposed top candidates styles so it's just up to them to ascertain whether they want him or would prefer to reinvest their cash (a loan deal would be very, very daft) in somebody more of their suiting. I still see more potential in Paulinho than Dembele.

I certainly don't want us to make any premature sales until the manager arrives, but if we could even get our money back then we could certainly improve the squad, including his position. There are better BTB players or that quality DLP we've been lacking out there for a fraction of that price.

Yes let's sell another proven international, after all Brazil is such an easy side to get a regular place in, because he is 'not good enough for Spurs. Our last two managers have really set the club back!!

Don't sell, have some faith in your picks.

Would be better to just focus on hiring the right coach.

We wouldn't sell to Chelsea.

I can see this being another Modric scenario

There is no integrity in the club.

They told AvB and Paulinho they wouldn't sell Bale when this was the plan all along.

No intention of buying Moutinho, Avb found out he was working for frauds he has friends at Porto who filled him in.



They lie, they cheat. Bunch of snakes.
These are not facts just assumptions you have made.

Do you think that the kind of people that run football clubs are any different to business people, bankers, politicians?

Enic have never hid that they are in this to make money.

Luka Modric is a completely different kettle of fish. At the time we were competing with Chelsea quite fiercely and Modric was a guy who we desperately wanted to keep. For all the people asking to give Paulinho time, what if Levy and the board actually believe that we've bought a dud (wouldn't be the 1st time hey?) now say they have the chance to get rid of the dud at a profit whilst sweetening a deal to take a player from Chelsea that would be seen as a great fit for our club. We get a great player with tremendous sell on value, we dump a dummy for a profit to a team that we supposedly hate. Not beyond the realms of possibility either.

For the record I would sell Paulinho to anyone that would give us our money back, yes he may have the ability but he has the heart of a pea and is never going to make a great Premier league player................... Just my onion of course
