Reported Chelsea target Paulinho has cooled talk linking him with a European move by dismissing claims made by agent Kia Joorabchian last week, insisting they have never spoken.
Joorabchian said that the Brazil international is set to move to Europe in the summer after impressing for Corinthians to attract the interest of both Milan clubs, as well as the Blues.
But 24-year-old Paulinho has rubbished the agent's claims, making it clear he has had no contact with him.
He said: "I have never talked with Kia. I have never seen him.
"He is once again putting my name in yet another thing."
