Porto have denied reports suggesting a deal is in place that would see Hulk join Chelsea, according to the Mirror.

The Brazilian striker has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks as Blues owner Roman Abramovich continues to rebuild his squad this summer. Hulk was expected to become Chelsea’s third major acquisition following the signings of Marko Marin and Eden Hazard, with reports suggesting a £30m deal had been agreed.

However, Porto president Pinto da Costa has denied those claims and insists contrary to reports, the club have not even received a formal bid for the striker. Speaking to Portuguese radio station Antena 1, da Costa said:

“At this point, there have not been any offers made to Porto, or anyone related to Porto, with regard to Hulk.

“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.”

Da Costa was quoted as saying in the Mirror.

The 25-year-old still has two years to run on his current Porto contract but has become one of the most sought-after strikers in the world after scoring an impressive 73 goals in just 96 appearances for the Portuguese outfit.
