FC Porto President Pinto da Costa has rubbished off rumors linking Hulk to Chelsea and PSG and confirm that there has been no formal approach from either clubs.
Chelsea have long been linked with a move for the Porto star and the talks are believed to have reached a dead end following the club’s refusal to climb down from their valuation of the Brazilian winger. The media was abuzz with news of Hulk’s supposed completed move to the European champions but according to da Costa they were false.
“At this point, there have not been any offers made to Porto, or anyone related to Porto, with regard to Hulk,” the Porto President said.
“That is the truth, despite what the papers say about Chelsea and PSG (Paris St Germain).
“Those stories are simply rumours. If you believe what they say, Hulk has already left us.”
In a recent interview to a newspaper, the 25 year old stated his desire to sign for the Blues. It was believed that the £38m asking price for the player has proven to be the barrier in this deal. Although da Costa steered clear from ruling out an eventual move, it could very well serve as a warning for the interested duo to act faster.
