Reported Chelsea target Hulk insists that should a big club come in for him, he will happily move on from Porto.

Brazil international Hulk has been consistently linked with a host of top clubs on the continent but has a €100 million release clause in his contract, which runs until 2016.

Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain are thought to be plotting a summer swoop for Hulk and while the 25-year-old says he is content at Porto, he would not have a problem moving to a bigger club.

"No one has contacted me, also because I do not get involved in such situations," he wrote on his Twitter page. "I have an agent and he handles such things for me. If something must happen, he will find what is best for me.

"Thanks to God, I am fine in Portugal and I am still motivated. Every year, a lot is speculated about my exit. I am in my fourth year at Porto, I am focused on this club and I have four years left on my contract.

"If I have to leave, it will certainly be a good move. If I have to leave for one of the big leagues, I would do it happily."

Hulk moved to Porto in 2008 and has made nine appearances for Brazil.
