According the the media, Chelsea are looking to sign Paulinho in a deal worth around £30m. In what would represent a near double money profit in a year, I have a feeling that Daniel Levy would be rubbing his hands in glee, especially as the Brazilian has hardly set the world alight this season. Problem is that you feel he is a player made for Chelsea and it is a move he would surely welcome, especially as there is already a group of fellow Brazilians at Stamford Bridge, plus of course the far greater expectation of trophies and a bigger pay cheque.
Though Paulinho is now a first team regular at WHL, I still get the feeling he would love to jump ship for "bigger and better" in the summer, especially if no mouthwatering managerial appointment is added in the next month or so. You do see that Paulinho has the energy and all-round midfield game to be seen as an asset to Chelsea and perhaps as the long term natural successor to Frank Lampard.
Spurs may well consider this not only good business in terms of a very quick profit, but if it gave a greater chance to sign Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku it could be seen as even better. Of course swaps rarely happen, but if both players were receptive, our selling Paulinho, might make Chelsea push us to preferred bidder status for the Belgium striker and that for me, would be very astute or lucky business for Tottenham...
