Chelsea were dealt a blow in their chase for Brazil international Hulk after he insisted he was happy with his life in Russia.

Reports last week suggested the former Porto man wanted to leave Zenit St Petersburg just a few months after making a big money move there and was set to make the switch to Chelsea.

The 26-year-old’s unhappiness at the Russian side was put down to a supporters’ group writing a letter opposing the signing of black players.

However, Hulk has now come out to say he is happy in at Zenit and is not planning on leaving them for Stamford Bridge any time soon.

“I am satisfied with my career at Zenit. I'm giving my best to the shirt and I have no intention of leaving Russia,” he is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

"I have a long contract and what happened in the past is now gone."

The report claims Hulk’s move to Zenit was in the region of £48million so Chelsea would likely have to have stumped at least as much as that if they wanted to sign him.

The Blues were heavily tipped with a move for the powerful forward before his switch to Russia but the deal to take him to Stamford Bridge never materialised.
