Hulk: Could be set for Porto exit

Hulk is expected to make a big-money move from Porto after his agent insisted now is the time for the striker to be sold.

The Brazil international is one of the most sought-after players in Europe after starring for Porto as they claimed back-to-back titles.

And after much speculation in recent transfer windows, the 25-year-old finally appears set to leave the Portuguese champions, according to his agent Teodoro Fonseca.

"I have no doubts," Fonseca told Portuguese radio station Antena 1. "After four seasons at Porto, this is the moment to sell the footballer.

"Today he is the player with the most offers in all of Europe and I think this is the moment to study the situation calmly.

"The kid is calm but prepared for the move to a big foreign club.

"Porto have valued Hulk at 100million euros but I believe this will not be a problem.

"For any club, Hulk provides goals, pleasure and titles and those are priceless."

In contrast, it appears Porto defender Rolando will be staying at the club after expressing his intention to remain as long as he is wanted.

The Portugal international told newspaper A Jogo: "I am very content at Porto. I think that I have the chance to play more minutes so I prefer to stay at the club.

"If the coach and the directors want me, I am 100 per cent willing."

The 26-year-old had been linked with a summer move to the Premier League, while Russian club Anzhi were interested in January.

But Rolando reiterated his desire to win trophies in Portugal.

"I signed a deal with Porto and my dream is to win titles there," added Rolando.

"The only way I could accept an exit is if the directors did not think I was able to contribute to the team.

"Never have I decided to leave. But in the world of football it is not possible to give a definite answer from day-to-day."

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
