Porto striker Hulk rules out move to Manchester City in January

Manchester City transfer target Hulk has indicated that he does not want to leave his current club Porto during the transfer window.

Hulk has been one of many strikers linked to City, and a move during January was suggested but the striker has reiterated his commitment to Porto and helping the club towards a 25th league title.

"I want to be a champion with Porto and carry on the season playing for the club,” he told Portuguese media.

“I am 100 per cent focused on this and my head is not thinking about anything else.”

Porto are currently top of the Portuguese Primeira Liga, eight points clear of bitter rivals Benfica, and are into the final 32 of the Europa League after finishing top of their group.

However, Hulk did admit his long-term future may lie away from the club, as some high-profile European sides, who are monitoring his situation, may be able to boost his chances of playing for Brazil.

"I have a contract with Porto and all the speculation does not affect me," he added.

"If I was playing in another league in England, Spain or Italy, I would have a lot more media attention and it would give me more opportunities to play for Brazil.”
