Massimo Moratti closes the doors on the possibility of signing Paulinho. Outside of his office in Saras, the Inter president issued a statement that effectively puts an end to any negotiations for the Brazilian player.
“At this time it cannot be done, it is more likely that he is going to come in June. This is not so much an economic issue but for the player’s commitments in Brazil with Corinthians.”
Corinthians have postponed everything to the next window, this summer. Too complicated to convince the player to give up the chance to play in the upcoming Copa Libertadoers who wants a good show before saying goodbye definitively to this club. Therefore, Paulinho will probably wear the Inter shirt in June as confirmed by Moratti.
“Nothing news” on the front of Schelotto as hinted by the president. For the Atalanta winger, talks are still alive but the club in Bergamo remains firm on their position. Still need at least another midfielder for January after the serious injury of Mudingayi (out 5-6 months, out for season) and that midfielder will not be Paulinho.
