Premier League newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly rivalling La Liga outfit Valencia for PSG winger Goncalo Guedes
Wolverhampton Wanderers have already added to their Portuguese contingent this summer with the signing of two players with over 180 international caps between them – experienced midfielder Joao Moutinho and the country’s number one goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
But the chances of them being joined at Molineux by Goncalo Guedes look slim.
Another Jorge Mendes client, Guedes appears to have no future at Paris Saint-Germain and L’Equipe stated last week that Wolves were interested despite his price-tag standing at a huge £53 million.
But latest reports from Spain appear to kill off any hopes of seeing the 21-year-old strut his stuff in ‘old gold’. Super Deporte claims that Guedes himself has ruled out a switch to Wolves and has no interest in a move to the Premier League this summer.
The explosive attacker spent last season on loan at Valencia, scoring five times and assisting nine more in La Liga as Los Che sealed their return to the Champions League. Super Deporte adds that Guedes will only leave PSG in order to return to Mestalla.
The problem, however, is that L’Equipe stated that Valencia were only willing to offer £35 million, far less than PSG’s £53 million valuation.
From now on though, it seems that Valencia will have a clear run at signing a player some believe to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s eventual successor in Portuguese football.
PSG signed Guedes from Benfica in January 2017 for £22 million, according to ESPN.
