The past Michael Beale comment that suggests he'd be ready to leave QPR for Wolves

Michael Beale is reportedly Wolves’ top choice to replace Bruno Lage at Wolves.

The club are making a move for the 42-year-old, who has made a highly impressive start to the season with QPR.

Beale has become the new priority for Wolves, after Julen Lopetegui turned the job down recently.

The club will now attempt to thrash out a deal, and it is thought his release clause is worth around £1 million.

Wolves are reportedly hoping to have Beale in the dugout for Sunday’s game with Leicester City.

It is a change from the usual direction for Wolves, whose last two managers have been Jorge Mendes clients.

The deal is not done yet, but by many accounts there seems to be a good chance of him succeeding Lage.

And there are actually some previous comments made by Beale that would suggest he’d have no problem taking the job.

In an interview with Sky Sports earlier this year, he talked about moving to Sao Paulo from Liverpool.

He said: “It was a huge club. Their academy is one of the most famous academies in the world and when I saw that I was seduced by it and wanted to give it a go.

“It was the best decision I made – albeit I wasn’t ready to leave Liverpool. A lot of the jobs I’ve left, I wasn’t ready to leave but the opportunity to make that next challenge and that next step I felt was important to me.”

Michael Beale’s past comment may suggest he’ll accept Wolves proposal

So Beale is an individual who is not afraid to take the plunge if needs be.

He has not been with QPR for very long. But his previous comments suggest he’d have no qualms about taking a higher step.

And this would be a considerably higher step.

It is a huge job, with Wolves really struggling in the final third and lacking fight at the moment.

By many accounts Beale is a great and motivational coach. If it is to be him that comes in, hopefully the players will respond well.
