Patrick Cutrone’s exit from Wolves to join Empoli on loan has now been confirmed.
Bruno Lage said yesterday that the Italian striker wasn’t happy at Molineux throughout pre-season.
And that has led to Cutrone embarking on his third temporary spell away from the club.
He spent time at Valencia and Fiorentina last season but failed to make an impression at either club.
And Cutrone has reacted on Instagram after the transfer news was confirmed.
It wasn’t too far from the usual platitudes players send out when they join a new club these days.
Perhaps the inclusion of ‘happy’ was an indication that he is pleased to be away from a club where he wasn’t happy before, according to his manager.
Maybe we’re reading too much into it.
Fair play to Lage for getting a player who wasn’t happy out of the club.
Unity and everyone pulling in the same direction is clearly very important to the new boss.
Cutrone needs a good season in Serie A to get his confidence up after a tough period.
Rafa Mir is the template really, although the Spaniard could end up taking his spot as the third striker at Molineux.
