Hulk in no hurry for move to Man U

Posted By: Staff

London, Jan 5 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who was planning to offer 20 million pounds for Brazilian striker Hulk, will have to wait for some more time after the player's agent declared that inclusion in Brazil's World Cup squad is the most important thing.

Ferguson is an admirer of the Porto star whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Souza and wants to strengthen his forward line as he bids for a fourth successive Premier League title.

His agent Teodoro Fonseca said: "Inclusion in Brazil's World Cup squad is the most important thing. If he gets in, it could act as a gateway to England for him and that is what we want."

Hulk, 23, whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Souza, has four years left on his contract and is also rated highly by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Hulk made his Brazil debut against England in November and now has two caps. He is likely to be named in his country's World Cup squad.

He got his nickname because of his stocky appearance and his likeness to actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the comic book hero. (ANI)
