Hulk: I’m leaving Shanghai SIPG and have major offers

Brazilian forward Hulk has announced that he will leave Shanghai SIPG when his contract expires in December.

Speaking to Globo Esporte, the 33-year-old revealed that he has called time on his four year stay in China.

“In December my contract is ending,” said Hulk. “We already had a meeting and I told the club that I don’t want to renew.

“And now offers are flooding in. It’s true there are great clubs from Europe [making offers], competing in the Champions League, and Brazil as well.

“There are even offers from China, but I don’t want to stay here anymore. I am studying, asking God to help me choose the best option.”

Hulk added that he has decided to put happiness before money and will decide his next club based on that.

The former FC Porto and Zenit star has interest from Brazil, with Palmeiras having a confirmed interest.

The 47-time Brazil international has played across the world, moving from Brazil to Japan in 2005.

From there he starred in Portugal with Porto before moving to Zenit for €60m in 2012.

In 2016, the powerful attacker joined Shanghai SIPG for an Asian record fee of €55m.

Hulk has made 125 appearances for the Chinese Super League side with a return of 69 goals and 53 assists.
