When Wolves signed Rafa Mir from Valencia it was a quite exciting swoop, largely because Real Madrid had been working to get the player from their Spanish rivals.
That he left the Valencia squad was seen as quite controversial, with many there feeling he had a genuine chance of a future with the club and was giving it up for a better contract elsewhere.
Joining Wolves in the January 2018 transfer window, by the time the summer came it was clear he’d need a loan move elsewhere, especially with the club being promoted to the Premier League.
So off he went to Las Palmas, where he’s had a mixed season, in and out of the team, with supporters at times being annoyed he wasn’t getting more chances to start games.
He managed to score 7 goals and provide a single assist.
Now away with the Spain U21 squad, he’s been speaking to Territorio UD, and was asked about his Wolves future: “I have a contract there for two more years. We have to talk to them to find the best solution for everyone. But first I focus on the selection, have a vacation with my family and then we’ll talk.”
Mir provided a hint he could even move back to Las Palmas this summer: “I think it’s a see you later. I don’t know what’s going to happen, maybe in a few months I’m here again, that I would not mind because I’m very happy here. At the moment it’s a see you later, when I finish the Europeans and have a few days of vacation with my family, we will focus on what we will do next season.”
There’s a chance, however small it may be, that Nuno Espirito Santo could give Mir a chance next season. Apart from that, another loan or a sale with a buyback option look possible.
