There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by Metro that Chelsea could well be set to miss out on one of their top transfer targets.
The club have reportedly been chasing Zenit St Petersburg’s Hulk who as we all know has been dying to leave his current club and has been angling for a move for – well as one of our punters quips, since he joined.
It had been thought that Jose Mourinho was keen on bringing the former Porto player to his Blues side and Andre Villas-Boas had also been linked with a move for the centre forward and given how well the pair know each other we weren’t shocked by that either.
Now it seems the player could well be set for a move to Monaco who seem to be buying just about every top quality player on the planet this summer. After managing to lure most wanted man Radamel Falcao the side are willing to land another blow to Chelsea and indeed the footballing world and snap up Hulk for around £35 million.
Chelsea are thought to be negotiating for Napoli’s Edinson Cavani following the signature of fellow striker Andre Schurrle yesterday.
Chelsea fans. Are you that gutted to have seemingly missed out on Hulk? Let us know your thoughts below.
