Hulk ready to snub Premier League transfer for Porto return as Brazil striker nears end of Shanghai SIPG stint
HULK is reportedly set to turn down the chance to play in the Premier League in order to return to his former club Porto.
The Brazilian will leave current club Shangai SIPG after revealing he would not be renewing his contract in China.
He recently posted what seemed to be a farewell message to the club and expressed his gratitude for his treatment during his time there.
He said: "I want to express all my pride, affection, gratitude and respect for Chinese soccer.
"I arrived in China in 2016 and since then I have always been very well treated and respected by all."
Hulk, 34, has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League throughout the summer but would prefer to go back to his former club Porto, according to OJOGO.
OJOGO also claim that Porto are aware of his eagerness to return to Portugal and are willing to offer him a contract worth £1.3million a-year.
Hulk will be able to leave China on a free at the end of the year and claims that clubs all across Europe are interested in signing him and that he was listening to offers.
Speaking to Brazilian outlet Lance, he said: "I am listening to many proposals from Brazil and many places including in Europe.
"[I have offers from] Turkey, Portugal, England, Spain, Italy, Germany – and I also have an offer from China.
"Every day more new proposals arrive.
"I thank God I have a name that's very strong in the market.
"The clubs have been following me and I keep up to date physically, it helps a lot."
