Often it is used to say that it is not just to judge a book by his cover and that the appearances deceive, and that's why José Paulo Bezerra Maciel Júnior, more known like Paulinho, has to have an opportunity in the FC Barcelona. With an irregular path in the Tottenham and a shine recovered in the Guangzhou and in the Brazilian selection, the midfield player has arrived the City Condal mentalizado that the words matter little and the key will be his performance.

Without concerning by his wage, by the position in which it will play, or even in case it will lose options to play the World-wide of Russia, the footballer has had it clear, "always have wanted to be here, this is the Barça". "It does not like me speak for speaking. I will show what have to show in the field. I will help to my mates and will work each day", has confessed, a good start for what expects him in the Camp Nou.

Because in the complicated situation that lives the club, seems difficult to understand the interest by a player of 29 years, that played in a league of lower level and that does not finish to square in what it understands as 'profile Barça'. In spite of everything, in the changing room fit fine stylists and workers sacrificed, and this last is the paper to the that Paulinho will have to hold.

Although emulate his big performance seems still a challenge too dared for the one of Sao Paulo, his mirror has to be a figure that caló very deep in the hearts of the fans barcelonista, Seydou Keita. The maliense arrived also between surprises, with a similar age and after having cuajado only a good year in the Seville, to the that arrived pertinent of the Lens. And it triumphed.

It triumphed as it has to do Paulinho, running as the one who more between Xavi, Iniesta and Messi and helping so much in defence as in attack, in which it contributed important goals. Still they do not have at all that see and the performance of the Brazilian is an incógnita, but for the moment already share dorsal, the '15'. For the sake of the Barça, that bring him luck.

The price, a losa

What yes will accompany to Paulinho in all his career in the Camp Nou, will be the 40 million euros that has paid the Barça by his signing. The footballer has affirmed not feeling pressure by the elevated of his cost, but is true that as it is the market is a considerable investment.

The Barcelona are not having tarpaulin to the hour to negotiate, something that results very complicated by the big economic injection that resulted of the course of Neymar, but his mate of selection has to forget of the comments and centre in the lawn, where really wants to speak.
