Transfer information
We managed to agree a fee with Vasco da Gama for Paulinho at 5M. But, we started off by bidding his value, and got a counter offer that was higher than 15M. We managed to take off 10M and finished at a 5M initial fee and a 30% of profit of next transfer. The percentage of future fee was non-negotiable, the 5M can be a bit lower if you play your cards right or increase the percentage to 40 or 50%.

Pros
Paulinho is considered to be a spirited individual, which makes him easy to work with. The strongest area of his game is his Overall Speed, which is quite impressive for a 16-year-old. Strongest attribute is Acceleration, that underpins his speed. Paulinho is also a versatile player and is natural in more than one position, he can play as a lone striker or on both wings. His style is considered to be ‘smart’ and that makes him a very good prospect.

Cons
Paulinho lacks height and isn’t a very good header. He could do with being taught how to be an effective aerial presence. His inability to leap of the ground only shows that he needs to work on his jumping, balance and heading. And if you have some time left, invest time in improving his stamina and natural fitness. Also, don’t forget to appoint a tutor with a positive personality. It will make him stronger mentally.
