Joao Moutinho Officially Signs For Wolves

Remember when Wolves won the Euros in 2016 by surprising France in the final in Paris, mad! They weren't even in the Premier League at the time. They are now and they've got Joao Moutinho.

Having Jorge Mendes be on your side in football is rather helpful. The super agent is basically the man in charge of deciding where most of the best footballers in the world ply their trade.

Last summer he helped take a load of players to Wolves including Ruben Neves, who had been wanted by a slue of big name clubs, from Porto as they ended six years of being outside the Premier League by winning the Championship.


Wolves were not done though and whilst their side was too good for the Championship there was no guarantee it was good enough to keep them in the top tier. Luckily Mendes is linked to the whole of Portugal.

Rui Patricio ha already joined from Benfica this summer and now they've officially announced the signing of Joao Moutinho from Monaco:

In a statement the club said, "Wolves have made experienced Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho their latest new signing ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

"The 31-year-old midfielder has put pen to paper on a two-year deal and becomes the third new face to arrive at Molineux this summer.

"Moutinho is the third highest appearance maker for Portugal with 113 caps and has won major honours at both club and international level during his career."

Moutinho was part of the Euros 2012 winning side with Portugal and has just returned from playing at the World Cup in Russia.

It's believed the move for the 31 year old is worth just £5 million.

We look forward to Wolves signing Cristiano Ronaldo at some point in the future.
