With Wolverhampton Wanderers fans being less than impressed last month when speculation surfaced of a departure for Ivan Cavaleiro and the suggested destination being Huddersfield Town, I doubt this one will go over much better.

Teamtalk have carried a rather strange ‘exclusive’ this week – they seem to be running a few of them – and they say that they understand Fulham have moved into pole position to land the Portuguese international.

Again the suggestion is we are looking to offload him and make a quick profit on the sum paid to Monaco when he arrived back in 2016 for a club-record £7million.

They say newly-promoted Fulham are willing to pay £16million for him and that would obviously represent a decent uplift for his short stay at the Molineux so far.

I know the club are aiming higher this season than simply consolidation in the top-flight but would we really sell to a fellow newly promoted side?

Huddersfield do feature in the report though as it’s stated we have turned down £12million offers from both previously.

I’m not buying it – especially not at that fee.

  • Yet more media rubbish… and do you and they keep publishing it?
    Cavaleiro is a vital member of the squad and selling him would mean buying a replacement and the prices being asked have become stupid… and who would replace him anyway – Raheem Sterling???

  • To sell Cavalerio would be suicide, we would not only lose his goals and assists but we would have to replace him at considerably more than what we would sell him for.
    Also he is a big fans favourite so selling him would upset a fair few, especially those who have renewed or purchased season tickets on the understanding that the club would be adding quality to those we already have, then there are those who have his name on their new tops!

    • Admittedly if somebody came in with £30/40m I could make an argument and I wouldn’t expect the club to care about names on back of shirts. If fans want to take that risk prior to the window shutting that falls on them. But under £20m, as you rightly point to, it would be a massive backfire on the message front and I can’t see it happening on that basis alone.

  • Ridiculous, why would Wolves sell him? They do not need the money. Not that sort of money any way. Furthermore why would you sell to a close competitor like Fulham or Huddesfield. If a top 4 club came with 30 mil then perhaps you would not want to stand in his way. He would be a difficult man to replace.
