Manchester United and Manchester City are set to miss out on Porto striker Hulk as PSG have prepared a £45million bid for January according to talkSPORT.
Both Manchester clubs have enquired about the possibility of Hulk moving to the Premier League but they were both knocked back by the Portuguese champions who are looking for over £50million for their prized possession.
The mega rich Qatari owners of the French capital side PSG, are prepared to spend anything to become the best team in Europe and a huge deal like this would make the rest of the continent take them seriously.
Napoli rejected a £40million bid from PSG for highly rated Edinson Cavani this week and so Hulk is now their number one target, but they do face stiff competition.
Sir Alex Ferguson is a long term admirer of the Brazil international but he is slightly out of his price range, whereas City can afford the striker and he could be a perfect replacement for the departing Carlos Tevez.
French newspaper La Parisian has claimed that PSG’s director of football, Leanardo, has a good relationship with Porto and his personal approach could give them the edge over City for Hulk’s signature if both clubs offer the same amount for the much wanted striker.
