Arsenal & Man City Interested in £34m Rated Brazilian Star

More that slightly overpriced to say the least!

The Rumour

HULK / Pablo ASSUNCAO

Arsenal and Manchester City are being linked with Porto star Hulk.

The 22-year-old is attracting interest having impressed in the Portuguese Liga and Champions League last season.

And Hulk’s representative claims an offer has been tabled, reportedly from an English side, with Arsenal and Manchester City said to hold an interest.

Teodoro Fonseca said: “Porto have rejected an offer for Hulk and will only consider a bid of at least €40million (£34m).

“Big clubs from Europe are interested in Hulk, but he is very content in Portugal.

“I do not believe it will be likely that Porto will accept a sale this summer.”

The Analysis

I was actually quite impressed with Hulk when i saw him in action in the Champions League but clearly Porto are insane if they think they will muster that type of bid for a player they only purchased from the J-League for £5m last summer!

Now if they had no interest in selling the Brazilian with the comic book hero name then that would be fine and dandy, but clearly by putting a huge price tag on the 22 year old’s shoulders they are trying to court interest and make some bucks.

Givanildo Vieira de Souza (Hulk) was a huge hit in Japan before he decided to opt for a move to Europe and he helped his side to fourth successive title last term. Yes Arsenal and Man City may be interested but they wouldn’t consider a bid worth even half of the £34m wanted.

The Likelihood

Hulk to Arsenal/Man City: At that price, no way!
