Paulinho: Tottenham's Brazilian target will leave Corinthians
Brazil midfielder Paulinho's expected £17m move to Tottenham has moved closer after the player revealed he would be leaving Corinthians.
Last month Paulinho said Spurs had made a bid for him and he would decide his future after the Confederations Cup.
Full name: Jose Paulo Bezerra Maciel Junior
Born: 25 July 1988
Brazil caps: 17
Brazil goals: 5
The 24-year-old scored 34 goals in 167 games for the Brazilian side and featured in his country's 3-0 win over Spain in Sunday's cup final.
"What I have to say to Corinthians is 'see you soon'," he said.
"Pretty soon I'll be back, owing to everything you have done for me."
Real Madrid have also shown interest in Paulinho, but he is expected to move to White Hart Lane.
