Manager Admits Wolves Target is £18,000 a Week and is Now ‘asking’ to Leave

Wolves have been given new impetus in the pursuit of one of their targets after his manager admitted he is “begging” to leave the club this summer.

The England manager is reportedly close to agreeing a new contract at Molineux but has admitted there is still a lot of uncertainty between now and the summer.

“My obvious hope is that we can all see eye to eye and that we can move things forward in a direction that we all aspire to.

“But until such discussions have taken place for the club, I’m not entirely sure how much we can do or how many of my ideas and some of the things I want to do in the summer will be possible with the financial situation.

“I don’t think we’ll have the money if no one leaves.

“So if we decide not to sell a big player, maybe we can do a few little things and there are players on loan who have value that we can maybe do a few little things with.”

Pedro Neto and Rayan Ait-Nouri have both been linked with moves away from the Old Gold this summer, while Max Kilman is believed to be on Manchester United’s radar. Should one of the three players leave, they will likely earn the club large transfer fees, which could be reinvested in the playing squad.

Bento on the radar

Wolves have previously been touted as a potential landing spot for Athletico Paranaense goalkeeper Bento, who has impressed in Brazil’s top flight and is expected to leave this summer. Now they have been given a boost on that front after his own manager admitted he is likely to leave.

Speaking to the media after the last game in which the Brazil international saved a penalty, Cuca revealed that the goalkeeper is asking to leave.

“Unfortunately or fortunately, we will lose Bento soon. He asks for a ticket.” [out of Brazil]And that’s exactly what the players are looking for: a place in Europe where they can earn their nest egg and compete in the world’s most important championships. He deserves it, he said.

Bento currently earns just £18,000 a week in Brazil and is likely to at least double his wages when he moves to Europe.

Should Wolves want to land him, they will have to fend off interest from Serie A champions Inter Milan and Premier League rivals Chelsea, although an undisputed No. 1 spot could well persuade him to leave the Midlands side To give preference to both teams.

However, Wolves will likely need to sell players before making a move, which could allow other clubs to take the initiative early.
