Of all the transfer Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed over the past few years, there will be little to no argument when it comes to labelling the operation taking Patrick Cutrone from Milan an absolute flop.
The Italian never managed to settle in England, which is why he was sent on various loans to Fiorentina and Valencia, and now there will be a need to find him a new club.
Currently a Wolves player, at least officially, the player is now on a quest to find himself somewhere where he can play regularly, where managers and fans alike will value what he has to offer.
This is, in essence, what the player told Il Giornale on Monday, where he was asked about a potential return to Milan, his boyhood club.
He said: “Today, I’m looking for a team that is determined to bet on me and allows me to play continuously. Right now, I need to have the trust of the coach and of the club. Wearing the Milan shirt has always been beautiful.
“I’m not worried about the future. The important thing is to be ready. That’s why I’m training and I want to go back to being a starter. The market has just started. We are working with my agent to find the best solution”.
That will be a move far, far away from Wolverhampton, and most likely England, as it seems unlikely that anyone in the Premier League will want to take a risk with Cutrone following his past performances on these shores.
