Givanildo Vieira de Souza, the Brazilian footballer popularly known as Hulk, has come out to say that he does not want to play in China anymore.
The player who is currently with Shanghai SIPG, a Chinese super league club said he intends to change club come winter. His current contract runs till this year December and he said he has no intention of renewals as he looks forward to taking the competition elsewhere.
"My contract ends in December, and I have already informed the club that I will not renew it. I have a lot of offers from several countries, including European top clubs participating in the Champions League, as well as from Brazil. There are even options with China, but I don't want to play here anymore.
The question of money is not a priority for me. I take my time, listen to my agents, and have time to think about where I would be better off. In December, I will be free, but what will happen next is not yet clear" said the Brazilian.
Hulk, almost 34 years old, who plays in the forward or right wing position, left Zenit St.Petersburg in 2016 for a fee of £50.22 million to his current club in China.
He is a great talent and will be so much welcomed back to European football.
