A busy day at Wolves yesterday saw the club officially announce Goncalo Guedes as a new signing at Molineux – and former Molineux winger Helder Costa sent a message to the star on Instagram.
The star has joined from Valencia to become Wanderers’ second addition of the summer.
Wolves paid around £27.5 million to land the Portugal international (BBC Sport), who will get straight to work at Compton Park ahead of this weekend’s clash with Fulham.
Hopes are high for Guedes, with Wolves having entered the new season with no strikers.
Raul Jimenez is nursing a knee injury, while Fabio Silva left the club to join Anderlecht on loan.
Guedes is capable of playing through the middle, and could be in contention to lead the line against Fulham.
It is a move that some Wolves fans haven’t quite processed yet.
Guedes is a player who has been on Wolves’ radar for a very long time. The 25-year-old has been linked with the club for at least the past few windows.
And he’s finally now an official Wolves player.
Chairman Jeff Shi said of signing Guedes: “Very few transfers are ever straightforward, and this was no exception, with a number of clubs trying to secure the player right up until the last minute.
“Now, we are delighted that Goncalo is a Wolves player and look forward to giving him a warm welcome at Molineux this Saturday.”
The star will wear the number 17 shirt, which was left free for 2022/23 by Silva.
Helder Costa sends message to Goncalo Guedes on Instagram
The announcement of Guedes’ move to Molineux was made late last night.
The player had had his medical earlier in the day, and had also undertaken media work.
After his busy day, Guedes shared a video from Wolves TV of him arriving at Compton and other parts of his day, including him signing the contract.
Former Molineux winger Helder Costa commented on the post saying ‘Let’s go Ducati’, with an accompanying motorbike emoji.
Quite possibly, that’s a nickname for Guedes based on his pace and explosiveness.
Hopefully we will be seeing plenty of that which will cause untold damage to Premier League defences.
