FC Porto apparently do not feel that Wolverhampton Wanderers will agree to spend £17 million to sign Vitinha.

That’s the claim from Portuguese outlet Record today.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

Wolves had an option to buy the player at the end of his loan to the club in 2020/21.

That option expired at the end of June, but it has been reported Wolves and Porto agreed to keep that agreement in place for a little longer.

Supposedly, Wolves couldn’t afford to sign Vitinha at the time of the clause expiring.

Wolves continue to have Vitinha as a target.

But Porto currently do not feel hopeful the Premier League side will be able to sign Vitinha at the agreed £17 million price.

The Primeira Liga giants are therefore keen to hear bids from other clubs for the 21-year-old.

 

Vitinha made 22 appearances for Wolves last season.

He showed some glimpses of his talent, but struggled for regular opportunities under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Potential for cut-price Vitinha deal?

Following this claim from Record, perhaps there is potential for Wolves to get Vitinha a little cheaper.

He remains a target, but it seems the finances involved are making a deal tricky.

If Porto are keen to sell, perhaps they may ultimately allow Wolves to take him for less.

Of course, there could well be interest from other clubs, so Vitinha could easily be heading elsewhere this summer.
