I’m staying at Porto, says Hulk

AC Milan, Manchester United, Manchester City are thought to be

chasing the signature of the 24-year-old, who scored 23 goals in 26

league games last season. However, Hulk penned a contract extension

at Porto in May, committing himself to the Portuguese champions

until 2016, and it is believed the new deal features a buy-out

clause in the region of £87million. The forward has previously

hinted he would be open to a move in the next couple of years if

the right offer came along, but for now he is adamant his future

lies in Portugal. He said: “To leave Porto now? I am signed for

another five years and my future is there.” Former Porto coach

Andre Villas-Boas departed the club to take over at Chelsea last

month and Hulk wished the manager all the best. He added: “I wish

him much luck, except if we play the Blues.”
