When Vitor Ferreira was about to leave Porto to join Wolverhampton Wanderers, most Portuguese newspapers said he’d be moving on a loan with an obligatory buying clause.
Outlet Record was the only one saying the permanent move would depend on an option to buy, and in the end, it seems they were right.
The newspaper is back today with a little update on the transfer, claiming this clause can be triggered by Wolves until the 30th of June.
The reason for this date isn’t only the end of the season, but also the end of the financial year, meaning this is a transfer which will count for 2020/21.
Porto are in need of money, and hope Wolves will end up triggering the clause so that can help the Dragons with the Financial Fair Play this year.
The Molineux side now need to spend €20m to make Vitinha’s transfer permanent, but there’s still a long way to go until they have to take that decision, as the player only just made his debut for the club by having a few minutes against Sheffield United on Monday.
