Wolves insist there's been no fallout with Julen Lopetegui amid new FFP concerns

Wolves say there has been no falling out with Julen Lopetegui, amid new concerns about FFP.

The Spaniard’s future is now the subject of speculation, after it was reported that Wolves will be needing to make player sales this summer to offset previous spending.

This season, Wanderers have shelled almost £200m million in transfer fees.

As a result, Wolves now have some concerns about Financial Fair Play.

It is going to mean Wolves are restricted this summer when it comes to buying new players.

Wanderers need to make sure they make some significant sales in order to balance the books.

It is expected that Ruben Neves will depart the club, and it’s previously been reported Wolves are looking for around £45 million to sell. The club may now need to lower this valuation, especially since other clubs will know they need money.

Other players who could leave and raise funds for the club are Jonny Castro Otto, Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence and Max Kilman.

Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore won’t fetch anything as their contracts are expiring.

These are slightly worrying times. But the Telegraph are reporting tonight that Wolves are ‘insisting’ there has been no fallout with Lopetegui.

That will be a slight relief to some. But it’s very possible the Spaniard’s feelings could change after this week’s meetings depending how they go.

Wolves must present clear plan to Julen Lopetegui, amid new FFP worries

It will be fascinating to see what happens with this situation.

Lopetegui did say recently that he was unaware of any FFP issues when he joined the club.

He would be within his rights to be annoyed at the Wolves board if they withheld information about that. It does seem like they might have, if Lopetegui has said he was unaware.

Wolves now need to tell Lopetegui how they intend to move forwards.

The Spaniard needs a clear plan as soon as possible. Hopefully, officials can produce one, and the 56-year-old will stay.
