According to Bild information, Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro are both holding discussions to sign the Leverkusen winger.
Paulinho and his management are getting closer to receiving their wish for a move out of Germany. Per Bild, Brazilian clubs Palmeiras and Atlético Mineiro are the favorites to sign Paulinho on a free transfer. Although his Leverkusen deal expires in 2023, it’s likely the contract will be dissolved by both sides.
The 22-year-old was left out of Leverkusen’s squad on Matchday 2 due to poor performances in training. Paulinho moved to the Bundesliga from Brazilian side Vasco da Gama in 2018 and has since tallied 8 goals and 5 assists in 73 appearances.
Time is of the essence to get this deal through the door, as Brazil’s summer window closes on Monday, August 15th.
