Raúl Jiménez hasn’t featured for Wolverhampton Wanderers after fracturing his skull in November and the void left by his absence saw the English club bring Willian José in the winter market.

Wolves took the 29-year-old on loan from Real Sociedad and a €25m purchase option was included as part of the agreement.

When La Real allowed the striker to leave in January, it seemed certain Wolves would make his stay permanent in the summer.

The Brazilian, however, struggled at Molineux, scoring one goal in 17 league appearances. Two weeks after the conclusion of the season, his future is ‘absolutely in the air’, reports Mundo Deportivo.

Willian’s first daughter was born in Donostia last Friday and he’s currently in Spain with his family.

As of today, the La Liga side have neither contacted the player nor the Premier League club to ‘solve the unknown’. Real Sociedad have ‘postponed’ contacts with both Willian and Wolves.

In the event Wolves decide not to exercise the purchase option, they will have to pay a penalty between €3m and €4m to the Spanish club.

Mundo state the ‘possibility’ of Wolves buying the South American for €25m is ‘more and more remote’.

This means Willian will now have to look for a new club, if Real Sociedad don’t have him in their plans next season.
