Former Wolves midfielder Vitinha now on Bayern Munich's radar

Former Wolves midfielder Vitinha is playing so well he is reportedly now on the radar of Bayern Munich.

The youngster has been a revelation in 2021/22 after establishing himself as a regular with FC Porto.

Vitinha had just returned to the club after a disappointing loan stint at Molineux, where he made just 22 appearances.

He was mostly used from the bench, with Nuno Espirito Santo preferred to turn to his more experienced midfield options. That was despite him saying in February 2021 that he was ‘full of talent and quality’.

Ultimately, club officials decided against exercising the £17 million option to buy that was in place.

Vitinha would not go back to Porto feeling sorry for himself though.

In fact, he has seemingly used the rejection by Wolves as something to drive him on. And so far this season he has been one of the best players in Portugal.

His displays have been that good that German giants Bayern Munich are now said to be on his tail.

Record say that there was a claim on a Bild podcast that the Bavarians are casting their eye over the 22-year-old, with a view to a potential swoop.

Bayern Munich interest in Vitinha says it all, after Wolves declined permanent deal

The notion that Bayern Munich are now interested in Vitinha really does suggest what a brilliant player Vitinha has become.

They’re one of the best teams in the world, so clearly Vitinha is now playing at a very high level to make it onto their shortlist.

Should he complete a big-money move to the Allianz Arena this summer, then that would be a further kick in the teeth for Wolves.

There’s every chance it could happen though, and Wolves may have no choice but to watch a potentially fantastic career unfold.
