This week, reports in the Chilean media claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers made an offer to sign Dario Osorio from Universidad de Chile.

The news quickly spread through the country’s football press, with many people getting excited about the potential move.

So as En Cancha today features a headline claiming ‘the trip to England is cancelled’, it makes it sound like the transfer to Wolves collapsed for some reason.

The truth is that the story is entirely about how the Molineux side have ruled out any chance of signing Osorio this summer.

En Cancha learned from their Wolves sources that the club are not following the winger and didn’t even know about him until this rumour showed up.

The report also points out how difficult it would be for Bruno Lage’s side to sign the player, since the rules for a work permit would require him taking part with the national team or in international competitions with his club.

Osorio has just made his debut for Chile, but that was just one game, and he is still to play in the Copa Libertadores or Sudamericana. So a move wouldn’t be possible, even if Wolves were really keen.
