Striker set to stay - Porto
Porto president Pinto da Costa says he expects Hulk to stay at the club despite strong interest from Chelsea.
Chelsea are keen on the Brazilian star as they look to replace Didier Drogba but they are reluctant to meet Porto's valuation and will not pay more than £30million for the player.
A release clause in the striker's contract means Chelsea or any other club would have to pay a massive 100million Euros unless Porto decided to cash in for less, and that looks unlikely to happen.
With Chelsea refusing to budge, Hulk will not be arriving at Stamford Bridge this summer and Porto also expect him to stay.
"I didn't meet Hulk's agent. Hulk is a player with a buyout fee and if any club want him, they just need to pay that, they don't need to come here," said da Costa.
"Hulk will only leave if it interests both Porto and the player. But so far nothing happened to make me think we'll reach that point. Therefore, I expect that for this season Hulk will remain a Porto player."
