Porto Reject €80 million offer for Hulk

Porto have rejected an €80 million offer for Brazilian superstar Hulk, according to the player's agent.Teodoro Fonseca refused to reveal the identity of the club who had made the move for the forward, who has attracted attention from sides across Europe, including Manchester City and Chelsea.A new contract agreed in May ties Hulk to the Portuguese side for another five years but the 25-year-old does have a €100m release clause in his contract, which, if triggered, would make him the most expensive footballer in history. Fonseca told Record: "I would be lying if I said there hadn't been offers for the signing of Hulk. I believe the highest was for €80m, but FC Porto didn't even want to negotiate." But the agent remained quiet as to which club had made the offer. "That I can't reveal, but it wouldn't be difficult to guess because there are three or four clubs that are in conditions to pay those figures for a player," he said. Hulk has been repeatedly linked with Chelsea since manager Andre Villas-Boas left the Europa League winners to take over at Stamford Bridge.
