Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Rafa Mir spent the last season on loan at UD Las Palmas in the second division of the Spanish football, scoring seven goals in 30 league appearances.

His performance was sufficient to draw attention from Real Zaragoza, who will also play in the same league next season.

Three days ago, we carried a report from El Periódico de Aragón, who explained the 22-year-old earns £1m per year net with the Premier League club, and Zaragoza will not be able to afford his salary.

On June 24th, AS explained the forward’s potential move to the Segunda Division side is gaining ‘more strength’ and he was expected to become their second summer signing as they’ve already agreed a loan deal with Watford for Luis Suarez.

El Periódico de Aragón now claims Zaragoza have ‘shown interest’ in Mir.

For Wolves to sanction his loan move, potential suitors must pay €500,000 in wages, which is half of the salary he is currently earning with them.

These demands seem ‘unaffordable’ for Zaragoza, which is why any move is getting complicated.
