Some Wolves fans have been flocking to a transfer update involving Joao Moutinho.
Should Wolves start Moutinho?
There is a ‘mutual desire’ from both the player and the club to make the move before the start of the new season, and Porto manager Sergio Conceicao is a big admirer of his.
Moutinho did not exactly have his best campaign in 2020/21, scoring just one goal and supplying one assist in 36 games across all competitions (Transfermarkt) as some Wolves supporters grew frustrated with a few of his performances towards the back end of the season, most notably against Tottenham and Everton.
However, the 34-year-old has been a loyal servant to the Midlands club, playing in 137 matches across all competitions across the last three seasons (Transfermarkt), and some Wolves fans are sad that he could be leaving.
Wolves fans on Moutinho transfer update
These Wolves supporters flocked to the transfer update as it was shared on Twitter, with a couple claiming that the Portugal international has been ‘fantastic’ for them and wishing him well if he were to leave Molineux:
“Glad for him. Will be great for him to finish his playing career back in his home country. Will always be thanking for his fantastic efforts for our club!!”
“Moutinho has been a revelation for #wwfc but to play in the Premier League in his position you need legs. Sadly he is no box to box player anymore. Time for fresh legs in our midfield.”
“Be a good move all round, he’s been fantastic in his time here but it’s time to look for a more dynamic midfield”
“So we’re thinking it’s ciao to Joao”
“Joao is the best technically gifted player that I’ve EVER seen in a Wolves shirt. I’ll be sad to see him go. But, I do think he went missing last season at times. I thought it was more to do with how Nuno set up with him. His set pieces were dire at times as well.”
“Just not sure about selling Moutinho, Neves, Rui and potentially Coady in one summer – that’s a lot of leadership and experience gone and not easily replaced.”
