FC Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that they have reached an agreement with Guangzhou Evergrande for Paulinho Bezerra to return to the Chinese club on loan.

Paulinho played his part in Barca winning back the league title from Real Madrid last season, but is now expected to be replaced by Paris Saint-Germain's Adrien Rabiot.

Even though the Brazilian scored 22 goals in just 84 games during his first spell with the Chinese outfit, his big-money money move to Spain was seen as a huge surprise.

Paulinho played 34 games and scored nine goals as Barcelona won La Liga last term, and started all five of Brazil's World Cup games in Russian Federation.

Paulinho recently spoke of his fondness for the club and his time in China in an article on the Players' Tribune website and was equally effusive on his return to the club.

The 24-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder joined the club from Portuguese runners-up Benfica and was reportedly wanted by Manchester United before opting for the CSL.

He has also won a Copa Libertadores and a Club World Cup with Brazilian club Corinthians. It is understood that Barcelona have a deal in place for the Gremio midfielder, who is a promising talent and can strengthen their creative unit.

As for Paulinho himself, it seems to be a logical move considering the fact that he will turn 30 later this month.
