Hulk puts Chelsea on red alert

Hulk has put Chelsea on red alert after suggesting he could leave Zenit St Petersburg in January.

The Russian big-spenders beat the Blues to his signature in the summer – eventually forking out £39.5 million for the Brazil international.

But he has now hinted he could leave after a public spat with boss Luciano Spalletti.

The powerful forward was substituted in the 80th minute of Zenit’s 1-0 Champions League win over AC Milan – and he then refused Spalletti’s handshake before gesturing angrily towards him from the bench.

And he said: "I feel fine in St Petersburg, my family is fine and my son is fine. 

“But if the situation with Luciano Spalletti does not resolve itself, I could leave in January. I don't know if Italy would be my destination, but anything can happen."
