Real Betis are reportedly open to offloading midfielder William Carvalho for a cut-price fee this summer, following previous links to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

El Desmarque report how Betis need to sell in order to free up their wage3 bill.

The 29-year-old is seen as someone to be offloaded, as he did not have the best of seasons in 2020/21.

Offers have not been forthcoming for Carvalho and as such, Betis are now said to be willing to lower their demands.

In an ideal world they’d like to recover most of the £17 million they paid for him in 2018.

But El Desmarque say Betis would be willing to consider offers in the region of €9-10 million/£7.6-£8.5 million.

Wolves were linked with Carvalho earlier this year.

Estadio Deportivo claimed in April that Molineux officials have a long-standing interest in Carvalho, who has 64 caps for Portugal.

 

New Carvalho asking price to tempt Wolves?

Ideally, Wolves will be keeping hold of Ruben Neves this summer.

But there’s a chance he could go, and the club would obviously need a replacement.

Joao Palhinha has been touted as an option, but Sporting CP will be opposed to selling a key player as they prepare to participate in the Champions League again.

£8.5 million is a decent price for Carvalho.

He has struggled a bit in recent times, with an injury he suffered in the 2019/20 season not helping his cause.

It remains to be seen if this particular Portuguese player appeals Molineux officials with his new, lower price tag..
