Hulk agrees personal terms with Chelsea – but what is the price?

There is a report in Portugal, coming from the massive Desporto website, that says (after being translated from Google): “The FC Porto’s Brazilian striker will start the season 2012/2013 in the London club Chelsea. Hulk already has an agreement with Chelsea. Hulk made ​​his last game with the jersey of FC Porto last Saturday in Vila do Conde. The team already knew FC Porto’s Brazilian decision to move from Porto to London……”

Now this is fantastic news if its true, and it will certainly spell the end of the road for Didier Drogba in the Chelsea team, BUT the whole world and his dog know that Porto have got a €100million euro buy-out clause in his contract.

According to the Porto boss Da Costa, Porto won’t reduce the price at all. “I say today what I said a year ago, I will do everything to keep Hulk at Porto,” Da Costa said. “I’m not interested in selling him.”

“Hulk has a price and we are not going to negotiate and accept an inferior price to that of his clause, our desire is for him to be in our squad next season.”

So if Desporto’s story is correct, does that mean that Chelsea have met the buyout clause?

    Porto trying to ramp up interest….in other words,,he is for sale at the right price but definitely no €100M!! Ignore all the nonsense about him not being for sale and all that cr@p.
    He’s worth €40M tops

  2. Shamwuna senza says

    If that is then that is a great news.

  3. hamzat taiwo says

    mr abramovich buy us hulk to strenghten our strikn focre and d likes of duo of cavanni and lavezzi

  4. lucky says

    He is a good player but that amount of money must not be on any player again

  5. Emmanuel says

    We are all craving for hulk and no longer concerned about Eden hazard move to man city,its a big miss for us…I just hope we get jovetic if we miss out on hazard…we also need a young and capable striker in persons of lewandowski and andre schurrle…It will be nice if we get hulk,hazard/jovetic and lewandowski/schurlle

  6. Nicholas Cage says

    I want to see Hulk and Falcao or Cavani striking with Mata behind them,then Marko marin from right operating there,then Chelsea should sign Cheick Tioté from Newcastle,then buy Gregory van der Wiel,Chelsea will be Ok

  7. Sanka says

    That is good news for chelsea club but the money is imposible

  8. mali says

    hulk yes, heard chelsea were still preparing for jovetic bid. I feel chelsea will also need an anchor man in midfield. Some1 who will be solid ,’ remember makelele’. Mayb some1 like m’vila or fellaini. And most defenitely a right wing bak ‘vdw’.. If chelsea are gona buy another CF then it has to be some1 not older then 25.. i also like that kid muniain, great great player, chelsea should buy him n loan thim right bak to bilbao, the same should be done with moura.. I just feel that chelsea will most defenitely find it hard to replace lampard, i mean who at this moment can come in and play like he has for chelsea? Im toking about the goals and assists, but sometimes things change thats when u look else where for goals .

    Jesus chris! Who on earth are behind all these crazy signings?
    We are damn too wasteFULL.
    I hope we’d sign bruce lee along, ‘cuz if hulk is that superb, how come we’r the only tèam after him?

    i’d rather they went for lewandowski nd let torres stay since didier drogba will be leaving and also there is this great kid in the youth team (lucas piåzon)..A brazilian who’s got talent,why not let him play in the first team next season,instead of buying munian or hazard or any other kid.Afterall munian is from their reserves or probably the youth.It would realy be great seein him with marin,mata or even maeachran nd lewandowski or torres.

  11. ENNY says

    F**k hulk money..the money is too much…let go for other sharp strikers..we can buy 3 sharp strikers with 100millions euros..

  12. The don says

    hulk is gud we shud price him nd buy him 4 lower price den giv marin nd piazon chance we shuld also sign Van der wiel den midfielders lyk hazard,fellaini,tiote den CF lyk lewandowski or schurrle den chel wil b beta nxt season

  13. lytech says

    we dont need player like hulk!
    all we need is the like of cavani and lavezzi…….
    pls,dis two players will be of great importance to our squard…..
    realize the like of malouda and bosingwa and possibly kalou to give room for the incoming ones…
    van dal wiel will b added advantage…..
    chelsea pls b prudent in ur signing dis season….i love my club with passion
