The agent of Corinthians midfielder Paulinho has revealed the interest of AC Milan.

AS Roma have been linked with Paulinho, but agent Bernardo Silva says he's held talks with Milan chief Ariedo Braida about a move to Europe.

Braida spent part of December in Brazil and Silva revealed: "We never had any contact with Roma. We met representatives of Valencia and AC Milan sporting director Braida.

"There were some contacts with Ukrainian and Russian clubs also."
