Reports from Spain and Portugal offer an insight into Rafa Mir’s future as a Wolves player.

Spanish outlet Super Deporte claim that Mir has turned down the offer of a new contract from Wolves.

They report that Mir didn’t feel that the club had enough confidence in him and has turned down their proposal.

With his contract expiring in June 2022, that reported decision raises questions over his next move.

Portuguese outlet A Bola claim that Porto are considering a swoop for the forward.

Another of their options is Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos, but if they can’t afford him, they’ll turn to Mir.

That could see Mir swap Molineux for the Champions League, given the Portuguese club will be in the group stage next season.

 

They knocked Juventus out of the competition in 2020/21, before going out at the hands of Chelsea in the quarter-finals.

How much could Wolves get for Mir?

The report claims Wolves want a minimum of 15 million euros (£12.9 million) for Mir.

Valencia are apparently open to a move but don’t have the money right now.

Champions League cash may mean Porto are able to match that asking price, and Mir also apparently has interest from Italy too.

Wolves clearly wanted to tie Mir down, to preserve his value at the very least.

But if he has turned down a new deal, it’s clear he wants to leave and it would be wise to cash in this summer, in order to put the money towards allowing Bruno Lage to reshape the squad as he sees fit.
