Bonatini spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Wolves from Al-Hilal, and as announced on the Wanderers’ official website, the English club have decided to make the move permanent in the summer transfer window.
The former Brazil Under-17 international forward made 29 starts and 14 substitute appearances in the Championship for Wolves last season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in the process.
The 24-year-old started the 2017-18 campaign on fire, but the Brazilian forward did not have a great second half of the season.
Some Wolves are not happy with the club’s decision to sign Bonatini on a permanent contract, as shown in the following posts on Twitter below.
It really is unbelievable. They must of been watching a different bonatini to me because I wouldn't have him in my Sunday league team— WLVES (@adamBriant1993) July 2, 2018
Leo is useless. Waste of £5m no matter what people’s opinions are. He was below average in the Champ, let alone the Prem. what the hell are we playing at. Why would we sign Leo and farm out Afobe? Unbelievable. Actually fuming at this. P.s welcome Vinagre— 1877Wolves (@WolvesTruth) June 30, 2018
We let Afobe go but sign Bonatini! Bonatini across the whole of last season was average at best. Not a Premier League player in my eyes. Maybe he will prove me wrong.— Jon Holdcroft (@jholdcroft3) June 30, 2018
id rather of kept afobe then... hope there's another striker incoming— csw (@corky69x) June 30, 2018
Vinagre I’m buzzing about, but Bonatini..... the guy couldn’t do it for 6 months in the championship. I’ll leave it at that— Z/\K (@ZHollowayy) June 30, 2018
Unsentimental but Bonatini did his job. Should be cheers and move on.— Steve Wellings (@stevenwellings) June 30, 2018
Maybe a little surprised about Bonatini BUT other than not scoring (I know that’s a big thing) from Xmas he still worked hard and linked play up well! Vinagre on full time I like— Rob Cotton (@robcotton84) June 30, 2018
Oh no not bonatini— Dan Hemingsley (@DanHemingsley) June 30, 2018
I can’t be the only one that thinks Leo will go out on loan at some point.— Jay (@JayCD6) June 30, 2018
