Chelsea have wasted no time in the transfer market despite having no permanent manager at the helm of the club after signing Marko Marin and the highly sought after Eden Hazard (as confirmed by the player himself), could they complete an incredible hat-trick by bring Porto’s Hulk to Stamford Bridge?
The Blues enjoyed a historic season by winning the FA Cup and Champions League but despite this they have fallen some way behind the Manchester clubs in the Premier League and Roman Abramovich is looking to build a new look attack to ensure Chelsea continue to dine at the top table in England’s top flight, as well as in Europe.
Hulk’s buyout clause stands at €100m but we’re obviously not going to pay that and it’s rumoured that the only thing that is holding up the deal is the difference of opinion between the clubs over his valuation, but the player is said to be keen on moving to Stamford Bridge and there are many that believe a deal can and will be struck.
The Brazilian forward’s agent Teodoro Fonseca recently revealed that several clubs are interested in Hulk but highlighted Chelsea as a frontrunner but we could face competition from Real Madrid as Jose Mourinho has been keeping an eye on the player, according to Fonseca, who said:
“Jose Mourinho was not there for a stroll.
“Mourinho was in Hamburg to see several players and, of course, he also went to see Hulk. It was he who stood out.”
Hulk can play as a striker but mostly plays on the wing, which is most likely where he’ll play should he come to Chelsea…unless Fernando Torres goal-shy form continues over another season. Hulk scored 21 goals and made 15 assists in 38 games in the Portuguese league.
