Wolves next manager latest: Nuno Espirito Santo interested in Molineux return, Galatasaray keen on him though

Nuno Espirito Santo would reportedly be open to returning to Wolves.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Molineux boss is apparently interested in succeeding Bruno Lage, who was sacked almost two weeks ago now.

Julen Lopetegui has turned down the job due to personal reasons.

And Wolves are thought not to have any interest in Pedro Martins.

And so there has been a lot of speculation on social media about a possible return to the club for Nuno, who has had short odds with some bookmakers.

Supposedly he is not a top target yet for Wolves.

But the Mail are reporting that he himself would be keen to come back to Molineux if the job was offered to him.

Nuno – who currently manages Saudi club Al-Ittihad – departed Wolves in May 2021 by mutual consent.

He was replaced by Lage, with Nuno heading to Tottenham Hotspur, where he lasted just a few months before getting sacked for a poor run of results.

The Mail say that while Nuno would be interested in coming back to Wolves, he actually does have interest from another club at the moment.

Turkish giants Galatasaray are mentioned as wanting the 48-year-old.

Nuno Espirito Santo back to Wolves could actually now happen

Talk of Nuno going back to Wolves is really now picking up.

It would be a remarkable story. But this could genuinely have legs given the lack of solutions – to use a classic Nunoism – out there at the moment.

Many Wolves fans are in favour of this.

Others are dead-set against it.

There are pros and cons but one thing is for sure – the reception he’d get on his first game back if he did return would be something quite special.
