According to Sky Sports, Jose Caldeira, who is one of Hulk's representatives has confirmed that "everything is possible" whilst discussing the potential transfer of his client, who is currently playing in the Russian league for Zenit St. Petersburg.

Chelsea have reportedly had a £35 million offer rejected by Zenit, who wanted something nearer to the £50 million fee they paid to secure his services from Porto last summer. It was reported that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was prepared to spend big and bring in both Napoli striker Edinson Cavani along with Hulk for a staggering £100 million. With the Cavani deal allegedly close to being complete, could this be the next chapter?

The players agent also suggested that France will be an option for his client. He stated "We can't announce anything at the moment, the player is concerntrating on the Confederations Cup. Nothing will be made official during this time". Suggesting that a deal has been agreed and will be made official once the tournament is over. 

The 26-year-old winger is currently representing his country Brazil in the tournament over in South America and it seems that he will be returning to a new club. His destination is uncertain but it could well be England or France.
