It seems that Rafael Mir isn’t any afraid of revealing all the details of his transfer from Valencia to Wolves.
The 20-year-old striker has spoken to outlet Cadena SER Valencia on Monday, and revealed that the move to the Championship side happened purely because his former club didn’t want to reinforce Real Madrid.
The player was linked to the Galacticos for quite a while, and that’s why the Wolves move was taken as a surprise when it happened out of the blue.
First speaking about Valencia’s alleged attempts to keep him at the club, Mir said: “Valencia only made me one renewal offer this summer. That they had been trying to renew with me for a year is a lie.”
Then he spoke about all the Real Madrid offers that have been turned down: “They rejected three or four offers from Real Madrid for me; however, they agreed to the first from Wolves in December. Valencia did not want me to go to Madrid and they did it.”
Regarding the departure from Valencia to Wolves, Mir claimed the room for growth was something that attracted him to the Championship side.
“I left Valencia because I wanted an ambitious project where I could grow and be trusted and there I did not see it.”
Signed on a €2m deal last week, Rafa Mir has already made his debut for Wolves, having playing a few minutes in the FA Cup match against Swansea City.
