Latest reports from Sky UK and Tribal Football suggest that Blues target Hulk is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge but has left his future in the hands of Porto. Chelsea are facing stiff competition from the likes of PSG,Manchester City and Juventus for securing the Brazilian’s services. Recent rumors suggest that that if ex-Blues manager AVB agrees a deal with Spurs, Spurs themselves could bid for Hulk due to the duo’s Porto connection.
Reports from Sky Sport suggested-
The Brazil international forward has been linked with a move to the Blues as part of UEFA Champions League winners’ significant summer spending spree.
The 25-year-old is open about the fact that he wants the switch to happen.
“Chelsea are the current European champions and would please any player and I’m no exception,” Hulk told O Jogo. “I’d be happy if the transfer happened.”
Much will depend on negotiations with Porto, as they are keen to get a good price for a player under contact until 2014 and whose stock is rising having netted three goals for Brazil this summer.
“I leave everything in the hands of Porto,” added Hulk.
“I am under contract and I have been happy at Porto for four years, where I have achieved everything.
“I’ll have the club in my heart no matter what happens this summer or in any other summer.”
Porto striker Hulk is sweating on Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich coming good with a decent offer for him. Blogolo says PSG have made a new offer of €53 million for the Brazilian, who would still prefer to move to Stamford Bridge. It is PSG’s second offer this year, after they proposed €72 million to Porto in May.Manchester City are willing to go to €55 million for Hulk, while Tottenham have also made contact with Porto this week to register their interest.But the striker wants to join Chelsea, though Abramovich won’t go higher than €38 million for his transfer.
|The Hulk transfer saga continues…..|
Well quite ironically the Hulk proposed transfer to Chelsea has turned into a saga, earlier it was being conjectured that Eden Hazard will take his time to announce his future and the media were expecting the Eden Hazard saga will be the one they can hype.But that’s how things turn in football. Chelsea have to bid higher and improve their offers for Hulk otherwise PSG could lure the Brazilian to Ligue 1.The Blues have had Hulk in their sights from the past 2 summers and nothing concrete has yet been decided.
If Chelsea want their man they might have to pay little extra in order to acquire the services of Givanildo Vieira de Souza. Rest is upto Mr. Roman I guess the Brazilian’s transfer is necessary in order to continue the ongoing rehabilitation and rebuilding process. If Chelsea fail in their bid to buy Hulk they might have to look somewhere else. But with Hulk admitting that he would be happy if the transfer already happened anything is possible.
Stay tuned for more..
Till then KTBFFH as always!
