Hulk denies knowledge of Chelsea approach

Hulk has denied all transfer rumours surrounding him, claiming that he has not spoken to anyone about a possible move away from Porto.

Reported in the Metro, the 25-year-old has spoken publicly about his lack of knowledge in any deals for him as he likes to stay away from negotiations, instead concentrating on his football.

He said: “I have four more years on my contract with Porto, and I’m focusing on the national team. I haven’t talked to anyone. As everyone knows, I don’t follow negotiations closely as that will make me lose my focus. I let my agent deal with that stuff.”

Chelsea were thought to be favorites to sign the Brazilian international after tracking the striker for a few years. At the beginning of the summer there were speculated figures in the region of £35 million however Porto have also denied any contact with any club regarding the possible sale of Hulk – who has a £78 million release clause in his contract.

It’s clear to see why there is such overwhelming interest in the attacker; in four seasons at Porto he has notched 52 goals in 96 league games making him Porto’s top scorer in their back-to-back championship winning seasons these last two years.
