Some Wolves fans have been left to rage as a transfer update emerged on Rui Patricio.
As per Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Jorge Mendes is ‘working’ on a deal to bring the Portugal international to AS Roma, with general director Tiago Pinto teaming up with him to get it done.
Should Wolves sell Patricio?
Patricio would be available for a ‘reasonable’ fee, one that would be ‘lower’ than others demanded by other teams for their respective goalkeepers.
The 33-year-old only missed one game in the Premier League in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), and so it would be silly to let such a key player go without a suitable replacement lined up.
Nonetheless, Patricio’s experience is vital both off of the pitch as well as on it, especially for the younger players coming through like Fabio Silva.
The Midlands club should really be looking to keep hold of their number one just for some stability, with question marks over the futures of their other key players given that they let the likes of Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty go in last summer’s window.
Wolves fans on Patricio transfer update
These members of the Molineux faithful raged as the transfer update was shared on Twitter:
“See a lot of our fans dismiss Rui as a keeper, personally think he’s solid and not even a position I’ve considered we needed to upgrade currently”
“Not one we should be selling we aren’t going to get more for him than what we originally paid because of his age!”
“Hope Wolves learn buy first sell after. Still can say no. Got at least another year while we get goalkeeping experience under him. We do develop good goalkeepers”
“Sorry but our only goalkeeper going for peanuts to be replaced by who exactly for less money?”
