Chelsea target Hulk: I leave my future in the hands of my agent

The Brazilian striker is looking to distance himself from the endless reports about his move away from Porto as he looks to focus on the national team at the Olympics
Porto forward Hulk has intimated that he still does not know here he will ply his trade next season, but remains confident that his agent will find the best solution for him.

The Brazil international is widely expected to leave the Estadio do Dragao in the summer, with his agent stating on Thursday that his client has set his heart on a Premier League challenge.

English sources have suggested that Chelsea and Porto are close to reaching an agreement in the region of €45 million (£36m) for Hulk, but the 25-year-old was noncommittal when asked about his future.

"We know that news about my future come out on a daily basis, but I am trying not to talk about it and leave everything in the hands of my agent," Hulk told CBF TV.

"I am sure that the best solution will be found, but all I am thinking about is being part of coach Mano Menezes' plans for the Olympic Games."

The former Tokyo Verdy attacker, who moved to Porto in 2008, has a €100m (£80m) buy-out clause attached to his contract, which runs until 2016.
