Report claims Wolves want Roma to double their offer for Patricio

Rui Patricio’s future should finally get sorted now that Portugal are out of Euro 2020.

There have been plenty of rumours flying around about the Wolves number one this summer.

Last week, it was reported that Wolves will offer him a new contract. But two days before, Fabrizio Romano said he’d join Roma, and Jose Sa would replace him.

Now, Gazzetta claim there is an offer on the table but it isn’t at a level woles would accept.

They claim Roma have offered 6 million euros (£5.2 million) and Wolves want double that to consider selling.

The report says Patricio would already be a Roma player if it were up to him but his family isn’t completely sold on the move.

The biggest barrier is the disparity between the two clubs in terms of fees, at the moment.

The report claims Wolves could meet in the middle or take a player from Roma as part of the deal, but it’s clear there’s still work to do.

Things should start to move now

Euro 2020 has slowed a lot of transfer negotiations down and it’s always been clear nothing would happen with Patricio’s future until after Portugal were out.

They lost 1-0 to Belgium last night, as Patricio was beaten all ends up by Thorgan Hazard’s swerving strike.

That means that the wheels should start turning now, and we’ll see what’s actually true after weeks of rumours about Patricio’s future.
