The hunting season for the Hulk opened a couple of days ago, and there are many clubs that would like to persuade the 34-year-old football beast to strengthen their team. It was written in the previous days and weeks that Porto is at the top of the list of interested clubs, that the Brazilian would like to be seen by clubs from MLS, ie the United Arab Emirates, as well as the Brazilian Palmeiras.
But early this morning, the British Sun broadcasts the news that the Hulk, who is a free agent, has been offered to Wolverhampton. It makes sense. The Wolves are a respectable Premier League team that is fighting for the top of the table, and the Brazilian could get a chance as a starting striker upon his arrival since Raul Jimenez had a skull operation ten days ago, that is, he was released from the hospital yesterday.
Another argument could be the non-existence of a language barrier - Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo is the coach, and he would share the locker room with nine other football players whose mother tongue is Portuguese, as well as his.
Thirdly, coming to Molino would be an opportunity for Hulk to play in one of the five best European leagues for the first time, at the age of 35.
However, there are serious financial problems. Because the Hulk earned about 22,000,000 euros per season in Shanghai, and the Wolves pay the biggest money annually to Joao Moutinho or Rui Patricio - they both earn between 5,000,000 and 6,000,000 euros.
However, if the claims of the Portuguese Record are true, that the former Zenit football player is ready to agree to 90 percent less money than what he earned in China, then the money is not a problem. So, the annual salary would be a little less than 3,000,000 euros, and that is the amount that the Wolves can cope with.
The Brazilian suggested even earlier that there is interest from England, and just imagine what the rush in which the Hulk and Adama Traore play would look like. No one could match them with physical strength, and many would run away from the duel game.
It will certainly be interesting to watch what happens. We used to watch Hulk at Porto and Zenit where he was one of the key players but he never made any big transfers. Now he just has a chance to show his strength in the strongest leagues in the world where we have always wanted to watch him but it never happened
