Hulk quells transfer speculation

BY foxsports • July 22, 2012

In-demand Porto striker Hulk claims his future is 'in God's hands' amid speculation linking him to both Tottenham and Chelsea.

The South American striker is currently with his international teammates in England as Brazil bid for gold at London 2012.

His presence in the capital has done little to quell talk both clubs could cement long-standing purported interest with a bid.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has made no secret of his admiration for a player who played a key role in the Porto side he guided to a treble in the 2010-11 campaign.

However, talk of a bid from North London, or indeed Chelsea, is nothing more than conjecture at this stage.

Hulk is loath to be drawn into speculation as to where he will be playing his football next season, insisting he leaves such decisions to God, and his agent.

"My future is in God's hands. Regarding transfers, I let my agent handle it. I'm focused on the national team," he told Lancenet.

Brazil impressed in easing to a 2-0 victory over Team GB on Friday night and Hulk is determined to help his nation to a first Olympic title.

"Who doesn't want to be Olympic champions? We know Brazil's Olympic history, it would be our first title," he added.

"We have a very united squad, we won't fail, and we are all focused.

"I want to bring that medal not only to my city of Campina Grande but also to the state of Paraiba."
