As João Moutinho’s contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers expires this month, we’ve seen the Portuguese media multiple times sounding sure that he’s leaving the Molineux this summer.

So as the midfielder now held a press conference with the national team, it was inevitable that he was asked about his situation at Wolves and a potential change of clubs this summer.

“I have always worked the same way, with or without a contract,” Moutinho told the local media (via Mais Futebol).

“We had a good season at the club, now I’m focused on making my contribution to the success of the national team, the other things will be resolved in due course.”

João Moutinho joined Wolves on a €5.6m move from Monaco in the summer of 2018, being one of the first players to arrive as a result of their partnership with Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes.

In the four years at the Molineux, the midfielder made 176 appearances for the club. This season, he featured in 39 games, with two goals scored.

His potential departure has been pointed out many times by the Portuguese media as a reason for Bruno Lage to be interested in Sporting midfielder João Palhinha, who’s close to leaving the Portuguese side this summer.
