Former Brazil international Hulk has confessed he has received calls from clubs wanting to sign him back home.
Hulk is out of contract in December and could leave Shanghai after four-and-a-half years.
“I’ve had many surveys from Brazilian clubs. Not only Palmeiras, but many others. But I didn’t even talk,” Hulk said. “In fact, I said I can’t talk now. I respect Shanghai SIPG, who I have a contract with.
“But in the future, for sure we will sit down and see what happens…”
Hulk has played outside of Brazil since 2004 when he left Vitória for Kawasaki Frontale in Japan.
However, he has left the door ajar for a move back home with his latest remarks.
