Sometimes the news in the transfer market is that there’s no news, and this is the case with the Vitinha saga.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, who had the midfielder on a loan spell last season, had the chance to sign him by triggering a €20m clause until June. Even though that was never done, it’s been claimed by the Portuguese media that the Molineux side could still make the signing in July.
Now according to newspaper Record, nothing has happened so far, and Vitinha continues to be ‘in the market’ for the summer.
The outlet points out that the player wasn’t included as part of the first team on Porto’s official website, and the club now work on his sale ‘with no deadline’.
It’s said Wolves continue to have Vitinha as a target, but there’s no longer ‘hope’ from Porto that the Premier League side will show up with the €20m.
The Dragons shall now analyse if other bids will come, or in case the player does well at the start of the season, he could end up being important to the team.
Perhaps that’d be a great chance for Wolves to sign Vitinha on a bargain deal.
