Chelsea Addition of Hulk Would Add to Scary Blues Attack

There was some confusion over the fee that the Portuguese club would accept, however, with officials claiming they still want £60 million—which Chelsea will not pay.
Personal terms are understood to have been agreed already, however, and although Porto are denying that they are close to an agreement, it appears that the transfer is moving closer.

He should be playing rugby. Soccer is for the more timid folk.

i dont know what football you watch but i have seen players make tackles that can break legs, headbutts, elbows and shots to the groin are common place

SephirothX212057d ago

Just look at how easy most players go down to the ground with any small touch at all.

PaPa-Slam2057d ago

You serious Bro, There has been ton's of gruesome injuries in this sports.

with marin, hazard, matta, hulk and torres our attacking potential would be significantly strengthened but i dont want chelsea to pay to much....

Mozilla892057d ago

Yeah I like Hulk but if we're going to be playing the same formation (4-2-3-1), then we already have Ramires who was doing great on that right mid-fielder role.

Kur02057d ago

it will be 4-2-2-2, torres and mata up front, hulk and hazard on the wings, and ramires and someone else in deep midfield.

GanjaMan2057d ago

ramires can play anywhere but i rekon hazard will play through the middle just behind torres and still keep ramires on the right and put hulk on the left
