Paulo Machado (born 21 March 1977) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Chinese club Tianjin Teda.
Born in Lisbon, Paulo Machado started his career with local giants Sporting CP, but only managed to make one first-team appearance for the club. He then had spells with a number of Portuguese clubs, including Vitória de Setúbal, Académica de Coimbra and Gil Vicente, before moving to China in 2013 to join Tianjin Teda.
Machado has been a regular for Tianjin Teda since joining the club, making over 150 appearances in all competitions. He has also been capped once by Portugal at senior level.
A versatile midfielder, Paulo Machado is known for his passing ability and vision. He is also a set-piece specialist, and has scored a number of important goals for Tianjin Teda from free-kicks and corners.
Machado’s performances in China have attracted interest from a number of European clubs, and he has been linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Barcelona in recent years. However, he remains under contract with Tianjin Teda until 2020, and it is thought that any potential suitors would have to pay a sizeable fee to secure his services.
As of June 2019, Paulo Machado’s net worth is estimated to be around $5 million. This includes his salary at Tianjin Teda, which is thought to be in the region of $2 million per year. Machado also has a number of endorsement deals with companies such as Adidas and Puma, which help to boost his overall earnings.
