The future of Wolverhampton Wanderers fullback Ruben Vinagre continues to get some considerable attention from the Portuguese media.
Today it’s newspaper A Bola who features a short story on him, claiming that following Bruno Lage’s arrival at Molineux, the 22-year-old’s situation has been ‘discussed’.
Since Jorge Mendes’ company Gestitufe represents both the coach and the player, there’s been a ‘conversation and analysis’ about Vinagre’s future at the club.
Even though there’s no word on their verdict, the Portuguese media is very confident that the fullback’s future lies in his home country. Following a loan spell at Famalicão, it now looks like he’ll be moving to Lisbon this summer.
A Bola writes that Vinagre ‘shouldn’t escape from Benfica’, who ‘have the subject under control’, ‘in sync with agent and partner Jorge Mendes’.
Sporting, who’ve been linked to the player in the past few weeks, are also said to be interested, but the outlet makes it clear that the Eagles are more likely to land him.
Ruben Vinagre has a contract with Wolves running until 2024. Despite strong rumours about a move back to Portugal, the local media is still to say how much Benfica would offer for the transfer.
