Chelsea begin Hulk talks

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have reportedly reopened talks with Porto regarding the a possible summer deal for Brazilian forward Hulk.

Hulk is enjoying another fruitful season Estádio do Dragão, having scored 14 goals and contributed 12 assists for Vítor Pereira's side so far this term.

The 25-year-old has, though, frequently been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, particularly during the brief Chelsea tenure of Andre Villas-Boas.

Hulk really flourished under Villas-Boas' stewardship at Porto - scoring 35 times during a remarkable quadruple winning campaign last year.

Villas-Boas' exit appeared to put paid to any potential move for Hulk to Chelsea but, according to the Daily Mail, the Blues have made their interest known once again.

However, there still remains a stumbling over Hulk's valuation, and the Brazil international has a release clause of £85 million written into his contract.

Chelsea though are reportedly willing to negotiate with Porto, although it is unclear whether or not he is interested in a a move to the club with Villas-Boas no longer at the helm.
