Corinthians midfielder and reported Chelsea target Paulinho has revealed he could leave the Sao Paulo-based club in the summer.

The 24-year-old, who can operate as a central midfielder or an anchorman, was one of the star performers in the Brasileiro last season, with eight goals and three assists from 23 appearances. The Blues have been strongly linked to Paulinho, while Manchester City and Inter Milan are also understood to be showing interest.

"I do not know what will happen in June. Nor can I say with certainty that I will stay or go away, we will see. For the time being I am fully concentrated on Corinthians - what happens in the market, in summer or winter, we will see," the Brazil international told talkSPORT.

Paulinho's agent, Kia Joorabchian, recently stated his client would "definitely move" to a top European club in the summer, though the midfielder played down those claims soon after.

Chelsea have been interested in Paulinho for some time now but Corinthians were not willing to sell their most-prized asset. Inter are also keen on Paulinho and had a bid for him turned down last year.

Isco Wants to Continue with Malaga

Meanwhile, Malaga midfielder Isco insists he wants to remain at the La Liga outfit for the foreseeable future.

The 20-year-old has been in sublime form for Manuel Pellegrini's side this season. The Spain international has 10 goals and three assists to his name from 27 appearances this term, guiding his club to the last 16 of the Champions League and fourth place in the La Liga table.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid have been reportedly interested in the player but Isco stressed that he is not looking for a move away from Malaga.

"My head is here and my future is in the hands of Malaga. If the club decide to sell me because they need the money, I cannot do anything. I don't have a say there. But hopefully I can stay here for many years. That is what I want. I am really enjoying it here," Sky Sports quoted Isco.
