Shanghai SIPG forward Hulk admits interest from Brazil

Former Brazil international Hulk has confessed he has received calls from clubs wanting to sign him back home.

The 33-year-old starred in Europe for FC Porto and Zenit before joining Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League.

Hulk is out of contract in December and could leave Shanghai after four-and-a-half years.

Speaking to ESPN Brasil (via A BOLA), Hulk revealed contacts from Campeonato Brasileiro side Palmeiras and others.

“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.
