Wolves Beat Real Madrid To The Signing Of Huge Talent Thanks To Jorge Mendes
Thanks to the continued brilliance of super-agent Jorge Mendes, it looks like Championship side Wolves have secured one of the signings of the decade.
Nuno Espírito Santo's side, who are flying high in the league at present, have reportedly clinched a deal with Valencia starlet Rafa Mir, who turned down a move to Real Madrid to seal a move to the West Midlands.

Mir has been attracting interest from top European clubs for some time after scoring 15 goals in 19 games for Valencia Mestalla this season.
But a last minute move will see him join Wolves in the January transfer window.
Looks like Jorge Mendes is coming up clutch once again.

Mir, who is on the books of agent Jorge Mendes, will sign a four-year contract with the Championship outfit in a deal worth £1.5million, according to the Express And Star.
The 20-year-old forward refused to sign his contract renewal in the summer and Valencia manager Marcelino reminded him that he wouldn't train or play with the first team until he fixed his contractual situation.
