Since Wolverhampton Wanderers started bringing Portuguese players to the club, their home country press has been making a big coverage about everything surrounding the Championship side.

Now this investment is proved with numbers today, as newspaper O Jogo brings an article showing Wolves have already spent €66m on Portuguese players.

The story is out now because of the news saying the club are about to spend €15m on Diogo Jota, as they will use the buying clause included in his loan deal from Atlético Madrid.

The newspaper points out that another €30m was spent on Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro, plus €3m on Roderick Miranda, and also Ruben Neves, the club’s most expensive signing, for €18m. All in the past two years.

The newspaper has another story today claiming that Paços Ferreira will also benefit from Jota’s permanent transfer to Wolves.

That’s because the club kept a 10% share when selling him to Atletico Madrid, so they take the numbers mentioned in the Spanish press to say the Portuguese side will get €1.5m from the move.

No wonder why Portugal loves Wolves now.
