Manchester City have made a bid for Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk.

Life Sports says the Brazil international has already given his approval to the move and would be happy to make the switch to City in the summer.

City have now made a concrete bid for the 26 year-old, though it's understood it fell well short of the €55 million Zenit paid Porto last year for Hulk.

With Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao expected to join Chelsea and Napoli's Edinson Cavani on his way to Real Madrid, City are turning to Hulk as their big-name centre-forward signing for next season.
