No Chelsea move for Hulk in January

Porto striker Hulk is expected to stay at the club until the end of the season having received no contact from potential suitors Chelsea, Sky Sports reports.

Speculation over the Brazilian’s future has continued to mount since the beginning of January and former boss Andre Villas-Boas is looking to reunite himself with the striker. Hulk is also being chased by French side Paris Saint Germain and wealthy Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, but should stay in Porto for the rest of the season. Hulk’s contract holds an £83.5m buy-out clause, which has kept away any serious offers from reaching the Portuguese side.

The 25 year old is contracted to the Estadio do Dragao until 2015 and worked with Villas-Boas last season during Porto’s treble winning campaign. The Chelsea manager is keen on signing his former player, but has not made contact with Hulk or Porto to declare his interest. Hulk’s agent, Teodoro Fonseca, has stated that enquiries have been made, but no serious negotiations have been offered and the last serious bid was last season, which Hulk rejected.

Fonseca said: ‘The player isn’t preparing to leave Porto because he is happy at the club. I have not spoken to anybody from Chelsea. Villas-Boas knows the footballer and Porto well. Every day I receive calls from agents, but the only serious offers we have received were three last season, offering him a better salary than at Porto. But Hulk rejected them because of sporting motives. He is not just interested in money, but challenges on the pitch’.
