Chelsea’s Brazilian star wants his International team mate at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea should pull out all the stops to sign Hulk, according to the Blues midfield superstar Ramires.

“I really hope he comes. I have played with him in the Brazil national side and we were on opposite sides while I was at Benfica. Of course he would add a lot to the squad. If it was up to me it would all be sorted already.”

So there you go, buy Hulk and give Ramires a part time job sorting out transfers. It seems that the deal will be done sooner rather than later, after Hulk hinted that he was ready to move on. Ramires and Chelsea’s other Brazilian, David Luiz, have settled at the club and made a great impact. They will, undoubtedly, have told Hulk about their experience.

Meanwhile, Italian side Napoli are, according to The Mirror, chasing Chelsea and Serbia’s Branislav Ivanovic. Unless they offer an absolute fortune, however, Ivanovic will be going nowhere. He was nominated for player of the season and still has many years of his contract to run, but he was at pains to point out that the man who was quoted as saying he would be staying at Chelsea had absolutely no right to speak for him.

Ivanovic said: ‘I’ve seen in the press that an agent called Vlada Borozan has been saying things on my behalf, I would just like to put on record that he is not my agent and does not have the right to tell the press anything on my behalf.

‘With regards to speculation about my future, we will see what happens. But whatever happens, it will be between myself, Chelsea and my actual representatives.

‘As it stands today, I am a proud Chelsea player, four years remaining on my contract, have just won the Champions League, just captained my country on international duty, and am now ready for a holiday with my family to recharge my batteries and get ready for next season.’

After reportedly turning down Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho to stay with the Blues, it would be very strange if he went to Italy, who are undergoing another scandal over match fixing.
