This season, we’ve often covered the big coverage Wolves have been getting in the Portuguese press.

Nuno Espírito Santo and the many Portuguese players have attracted big attention from the country, and simple things like a win over Birmingham City are recently getting stories in the local newspapers.

But it’s not only in Portugal that Wolves are increasingly famous, because today, Italian website Calcio Mercato also brings a story on the recent success.

Their main character is Leo Bonatini, who had a short spell at Juventus as his first experience in Europe between 2012 and 2013.

They claim that Bonatini ‘would have made George Best happy’ with his recent goals in the Championship, which are leading the Wolves to Premier League promotion. It’s referenced that Best supported Wolves as a boyhood football fan.

Not forgetting the Chinese investment and ‘advice’ from Jorge Menedes, Calcio Mercato shows that the club are finally close to returning to the first tier, with a lot of credit to the Brazilian striker.

It shouldn’t take long until the Italian papers say that Juve should’ve kept him for longer.
