The Brazilian striker has endured a tumultuous time at Zenit since arriving during the summer. A number of the more established squad players immediately aired their grievances over Hulk’s significantly larger pay packet upon his arrival.
And relations have continued to deteriorate with Hulk unhappy with manager Luciano Spalletti for substituting the striker during a key Champions League clash with AC Milan.
The Russian club spent a record £51 million to bring the player in from Porto and it is thought Man City are one of the few clubs with the financial muscle to prise Hulk away from Russia.
Manchester City are in the market for a striker following the departure of Mario Balotelli to AC Milan.
They had been linked with David Villa but it appears he already has his sights set on a move to Arsenal.
That could pave the way for an approach for Hulk, raising the mouth-watering prospect of a three-pronged South American attacking line-up of Hulk, Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero.
