Hulk, 25, is one of the most talked about players in European football and could become one of the summer's major transfer sagas.

Chelsea have long been believed to be heading the chase for his signature, but French giants Paris Saint Germain have also entered the race.

The Brazil striker insists he has no pressing desire to move on from Porto, but if his club do decide to cash in it is likely Chelsea will face a fight to secure his signature.

"I am not desperate to leave Porto," Hulk told "I love the fans and have always been happy at the club. If a club reaches agreement with Porto, then I will go. But there is no rush as the transfer window runs until August."

When asked if he had a preference of London or Paris, Hulk said: "I honestly do not know my future. All I know is that there are several others besides these two clubs that have shown interest in me."
