REPORTS: Chelsea Linked With Record Striker Bid

By on July 29, 2011

The agent of Porto star Givanildo Vieira de Souza also known as “Hulk” claims his client has been subject to an £70million bid.

The astonishing claim comes after reports suggested Europe’s elite was interested in the powerful forward. Chelsea, AC Milan and Manchester City are amongst those who are reportedly interesting in the 24-year old but the reported bid for the player appears farfetched.

Despite an excellent season in Portugal the claim from the agent appears to be a red herring tact. However, the striker did boast 36 goals and 21 assists last season earning him player and top scorer of the year.

“I would be lying if I said no proposals have emerged to sign Hulk,” Daniel Fonseca told Portuguese newspaper Record.

“I think the highest bid was 80 million (EURO), but Porto did not even want to negotiate.”

Fonseca refused to be drawn on which club had tried to lure Hulk away.

He added: “I cannot reveal that. But it is not hard to see because there are only three or four clubs who are able to present those kind of numbers for a player.”

    hulk is not needed at chelsea. sturridge can get the job done instead. again if he wants to come it will be 15M. One must understand that Hulk never ever played for his national team but our entire team played atleast once

    We don’t need him. Sturridge can fill the boots of anelka and drogba in the future. We do need a Right Winger, a Right Back and a Central Defensive Midfielder. It would nice to have new talent challenging for the Left Wing and a goal poacher. So I’d like to see Gregory VDW or Micah Richards, Pastor to really challenge Lamps but Di rossi to challenge Mikel/Essien. RW Jesus Navas and Tevez on loan.
