Porto striker Hulk’s agent has claimed that a transfer fee of €100m would not be unreasonable for the 25 year old.
Hulk is one of Europe’s most sought-after players after he scored 23 goals in 26 league games during Porto’s treble winning campaign in 2010/11.
Hulk has a minimum fee release clause of €100m, which would break the world record €94m fee paid for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Brazilian striker has been linked with a host of clubs in recent seasons, with Paris St. Germain and Chelsea rumoured to be leading the chase.
Hulk’s agent Teodoro Fonseca told Radio Renascenca: “”Hulk is one of the best players in the world and he is being followed by big clubs in Europe.
“One hundred million euros is not such a high figure. Every European club knows that the money spent on him would be compensated by his talent.
“A Chinese club is already paying €10m per annum to an athlete and some Russian clubs are already paying €20m.”
