PSG set to boast former Wolves loanee Vitinha and Renato Sanches in their midfield

Many Wolves fans have not been happy with some of the club’s transfer-related decisions in recent times.

But over the past couple of years, some questionable decisions have been made. Especially with regards to players not brought into the club.

One of the biggest gripes for a lot of people was the decision to allow Vitinha to head back to FC Porto at the end of the 2020/21 season.

The midfielder spent the campaign on loan at Molineux, and made 22 appearances for the club.

It was felt that he didn’t quite show enough to warrant a £17 million transfer. He showed glimpses of his quality, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s preference to play more senior options prevented him from making a proper case.

He went back to Porto, and has just had a sensational campaign in which he starred for the title-winning club.

Another player who is a sensitive subject for a lot of Wolves fans is Renato Sanches.

The midfielder was set to join Wolves on loan on transfer deadline day last summer. But the club pulled the plug because he was carrying a knee injury at the time, and they felt it was too much of a risk.

Interestingly, both players are now set to become teammates at one of the biggest clubs in the world.

According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, a £34 million deal has been completed for Vitinha to join PSG. He says the move is done, and official confirmation should arrive soon.

And he adds that Sanches is the next target for the French giants.

It has been reported that the star only wants the Parc des Princes.

In an alternate reality, Vitinha and Sanches would be forming a partnership at Molineux as the new Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.

It is frustrating to think that Wolves had genuine opportunities to sign both players.

Ultimately, the club just weren’t willing to take the risks that were present with both players at the time.

And Wolves’ loss is very much PSG’s gain.

Presuming they are able to add both players, then the French giants will boast a seriously good midfield next season.
