Zenit Saint Petersburg might lose their star striker Hulk, as he seemed to have got into an ugly fallout with manager Luciano Spalletti. The man himself has confirmed the news saying, ‘If the situation with Spalletti is not solved, in January I will leave.’

Chelsea look to be keen on getting the Brazilian, as they have been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League and are also trailing by ten points behind table leaders Manchester United. Zenit invested £32m in Hulk this September, but Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich would be prepared to shell out even more money to bring him into the side.

The spat looked prominent as Hulk refused to shake hands with Spalletti when he was taken off the field after 80 minutes during Zenit’s 1-0 win over Inter Milan last night. The Brazilian is also going through a lean patch on the field as he has managed only two goals from eight appearances in the Russian Premier League.

Chelsea will definitely like to use the help of his national mates David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar who might influence the striker to sign for the club. With Fernando Torres looking out of shape for the Blues, there is a high chance that Hulk might be dragged to Stamford Bridge.
