Hulk Wants Chelsea Move But Postpones Talks Until After Confederations Cup

By on June 16, 2013

With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Hulk keen on Chelsea move but asks for talks to be delayed.


Chelsea target Hulk playing for Porto last season

Striker Hulk wants to move to Chelsea this summer but has asked for negotiations with Zenit St Petersburg to be delayed until after the conclusion of the Confederations Cup, according to the Daily Mail.

Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge two weeks ago and it appears he’s keen to re-shape his strike-force with the report claiming the Portuguese coach wants to make Hulk his second signing after agreeing a deal to sign Germany forward Andre Schurrle.

The 26-year-old his currently away on international duty with Brazil for the Confederations Cup and the Mail suggest he is keen on making the move to west London this summer and has asked his current club Zenit St Petersburg to accept the Blues £34.9m offer.

However, the newspaper claims the hitman has requested that negotiations be delayed until after the Confederations Cup has finished so he can concentrate on playing for his country, but that could put the move in jeopardy if Mourinho wants to get his business done early with the ‘Special One’ also believed to be eyeing Edinson Cavani and Wayne Rooney.

Hulk moved to Zenit from Porto in a big-money move last September but has struggled to settle in Russia and seems destined to move on again this summer. But will he end up at Chelsea? Only time will tell…

    no way they offered the same amount like last year….
    They offered 35 mill when he was at his top form at Porto ,so Offering that now?
    After a terrible floppy year at Zenit?
    im sure that if Chelsea will buy him that will be for 28 mill top! and the press got the numbers wrong here.
    also he can be useful he will free Oscar from the wing and let him play at the center like the start of the season.
    Lampard will pay the price thou.

    I don’t think we need Hulk. Lukaku can perfectly fit in his propects. We need a serious forward like Lewandowski, a mid-field holder like de rossi and a central defender just to put Luiz on his feet. With this, Chelsea will be fine. #team blues!!!

    Pls hulk is nt a good striker, he’s a flop @ zenit. Get Edison cavani @ all cost. Sell Ba, terry, beneyou, turnbull, ferrira, moses

    You pple don’t know that strikers like hulk can play in various role…. Cavanni can only. Play up front likewise lewandowski and jovetic we need a multiplaying role striker. If he flops upfront he can fit in well on the flanks don’t misjudge me torres is a perfect. Example he flops. In front thereby causing us. Great danger this season 36 league matches with 8goals he can’t play elsewhere dats why let’s go for hulk though he isn’t a natural finisher but with his short power and pace he will succeed at stamford bridge

    If hulk should be bought by chelsea that means there is still a chance for torres because hulk did nt justify his buy out price last season
