Chelsea ready to make third summer signing with Brazilian swoop

By on May 29, 2012 - 533 views

Chelsea are preparing a move for the their third summer signing with a £30m move for Porto forward Hulk, according to the Daily Express.

The 25-year-old, who predominantly plays as a winger, is reportedly Chelsea’s third target of the close season after they landed Werder Bremen’s Marko Marin and Lille’s Eden Hazard.

All this comes with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich still undecided on whether interim boss Roberto Di Matteo will land the position on a full-time basis after guiding the Blues to an FA Cup and Champions League double.

Hulk, capped on 10 occasions by Brazil, has the ability to both score and create chances with 23 goals and 15 assists in 45 matches for Porto during the 2011/12 campaign.

Meanwhile, Champions League final hero Petr Cech has announced that he will be extending his Chelsea contract by a further four years.

    May 29, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Kalou,malouda, ferreira,essien and bosingwa shuld pls leave. D av done dia part & its nw time to goi. We nid a right fullback to back up ivanovic and also a left wingback to ease sturrigde. Cfc shuld now forget modric now eden has com. D cant play in dat center wit mata(indispensable), lukaku shuld also go seek for epl xperience somwia

    I agree with you Juluis, bringing these three players to stamford bridge is a good move for chelsea..and let the boss add one defender

    May 29, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    we will be hotter dan fire if chelsea signs dese 3 players


    May 29, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Well wonder its been almost a day passed since Hazard posting on his official twitter site….I AM JOINING CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNER. But yet Lille or Chelsea officials confirming this. I just hope there is no more twist in this hazard saga and he lands at Stamford Bridge. Hulk will be also very good addition to our squad provided we do not pay excessive amount of money to Porto. I guess fee around 30-35m will be sufficient to land Hulk in Chelsea. Please sell our some of old guards after Drogba the chelsea living legend leaving by him self Kalou and Bosingwa to follow him, i would like in that list Malouda, Eseein, Ferreira, Hilario. UP FOR BLUES!!!!

    marin is good , hazard is awesome , id prefer we got lucas moura to play right wing but he doesnt want to move aparently so hulk will be great also , next season starting 11 4-2-3-1 formation cech – ivanovic luiz terry cole – ramires lampard – hulk mata hazard – torres , subs sturridge,marin,essien,mikel,cahill,bertrand,new rb,lukaku?malouda?meireles? awesome squad for new season , up blues !

    • tmoore

      May 29, 2012 at 2:28 pm

      William, mmm-mmm, i love ur starting 11 stuff but where do u put mikel? I fear for you. So you fink Mikel will be on the bench? Not with his recent perormances, u suddenly forgot? U expect Lamps and Ramires to play defensively? Don’t forget dat even these 2 players feel free to move forward whenever mikel is on the field! My own starting 11? Cech, ivanovic, luiz, terry, cole, mikel, ramires, hazard, mata, hulk, torres. As a matter of fact, i will prefer cahill to terry!

    • tee

    May 29, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    This summer for chelsea is getting very awesom with the number of great players like marin,hazard and the signature of hulk if the deal is done.but chelsea have forgotten to tip the signature of modric if possible bcos he is good in creating.

  15. Benedict

    May 29, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Don’t be carry away wit some rumore chelsea are yet 2 comfirm dere signing so anytine can still happen, watever dey wat 2 do now let dem act fast so dat we can sure of Eden Hazard,Marko Marin and Hulk signing, we don’t need 2 be disturbing urself conserning dis pep Gadiola issure let Roman Ibramovic permarlent RDM as ur new coach de man realy try 4 us by wining FA cup and CL is not easy tanks

  16. io

    May 29, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    a few must still go:

    sturridge – keeps wanted centra role, NOT possible;

    essien – chelsea can do charity if they want, and keep essien; but it is a football club ..

    lukaku – loan him then if not working, write him off / sell him;

    maluda – why why?? he is a ‘must’ go

    torres – by january he must confirm, or out; he has it all now;

    meireles – ok for one more chance till january;

  17. Suji Olusesi

    May 29, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    Well, i think is good to have Eden Hazard, i can’t just wait to see him playing for Chelsea. Marko Marin is another good signing but i will love to see Calfao to put on our blue jersey rather than super Hulk.

    Calfao is simply a phenomenor. He has many to deliver. Though Hulk is good but Falcao is better.

  18. Kola

    May 29, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    I like to use ourformation like this cech.Ivanovic,terry cole, mata, mikel ramires,lampard torres,harzad sub marin,sturidge,batrand,courtose,meireless

  19. kunle

    May 29, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    Thank God we are upgrading our squad. Hulk and a right back will be great. Moreso,some of our old or fading legends should be sold off. Blue is the colour. Up Chelsea

  20. Jnoni

    May 29, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    Chelseafc should try their possible best to sign this HULK,and go for any good right back to compete with ivanovic and also another offensive midfielder.And adopt the 4-2-3-2 formation or 4-5-1 formation,up chelseafc,up european champs.

  24. fumzzyjosh

    May 29, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    nice move,and chelsea should also sell malouda to enable the young players get some playing time. also,since bosingwa apparently has gone for free, chelsea should also acquire a decent right full back and give RDM the managerial job for atleast a year.true blue………..

    Am very happy abt roman abramovich cos acting quickly in d transfer market is d best.marko marin,eden hazard,hulk,modric,van der wiel is all chelsea need.4-2-3-1 formation. Ivanovic,cahill,terry,ashley cole,ramires,mikel,mata,hulk,torres,hazard. Then van der wiel,luiz,hutchisson,bertrand,lampard,essien,modric,marin,lukaku,sturridge,what a squad.up chelsea,i love u bluez…

  37. Ugbune success

    May 29, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Good news 4 d blues. Modric and a rightful back wil b an advantage

  38. Johnson Solomon

    May 29, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Good & visionary players in Marin,Hazard & possibly Hurk. But an addition of Evertons Felliani should also b considered so we can do away with deadlocks like Essien & Malouda. Our keeper on loan 2 Atletico Madrid should b given a chance 2 deputise Cech. Chelsea need a right back speed & pace 2 give a different option in dat position.

  39. Oloyede moshood abayomi

    May 29, 2012 at 6:19 pm

  60. Alphy

    May 30, 2012 at 7:44 am

    Malouda, Essien and sturiedge perhaps must be sold. When is Lucas piazon, Josh, chaloba, kane & feruz getting really chances. KDB ? Frank is unreachable.

  61. Abass
