Are you a fan of Chelsea pursuing Hulk? You're not alone. Well, you already weren't alone, because I know that just about everyone's excited about the idea of acquiring that left boot and watching shots goes flying in, but now you're super-not-alone because Ramires wants him too. And Ramires is much awesomer than us. That's totally a word.
I'm following here from Brazil the news about Chelsea's likely signing of Hulk. I hope he does come, I have played with him for the Brazilian national team, and I also played against him when I was at Benfica and he would surely add a lot to Chelsea's squad. If it was up to me, everything would be done already.

It's interesting seeing Ramires talking about Hulk, actually, because I suspect he's the man most likely to lose out in terms of playing time if Chelsea do end up acquiring him. I doubt he knows that, however, and I imagine Hulk and Ramires as good friends because I can't think of a scenario in which anyone meets Ramires and doesn't want to be good friends with him, so it's hardly a surprise that they're talking.
Does this mean Chelsea are any closer to actually signing Hulk? No, not really. But it's nice to hear it being talked about.
