Editor in Chief at Greek outlet Sportime Giannis Chorianopoulos has shared a breakdown of the transfer fee Wolves will sign Jose Sa for.

Yesterday, a report claimed Wolves would pay more than £8.6 million for the goalkeeper.

But he says that’ll be between 8 and 9 million euros (£6.9 – £7.7 million) up front.

And then 2-2.5 million euros (£1.7-£2.1 million) in add-ons will be paid by Wolves.

It was also reported yesterday that Sa would earn a shade under £25,000-a-week at Molineux.

It seems we’re just waiting for confirmation of Sa coming to Wolves and Rui Patricio going to Roma.

Bruno Lage will likely be pleased to have his goalkeeping situation resolved.


It’ll be Sa’s first season in English football and pre-season could be important in terms of getting him acclimatised.

Replacing Patricio won’t be easy. He’s an international goalkeeper and gave Wolves’ backline confidence.

No manager likes losing his first choice goalkeeper but Wolves have seemingly acted swiftly to replace him.

And the price doesn’t seem too expensive. It can be hard to get a decent price when selling clubs know you need to replace and outgoing player quickly.

We’ll likely see what the add-ons are, whether they’re performance related or just mean the fee is staggered in due course.
