After a controversy involving midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, who would have broken social isolation in England, Wolves clearly disregard the athlete’s stance and are looking for possible replacements for him in the market. Since they are already a Portuguese Legion, with lots of Portuguese players in the current squad, including the manager, they’re after another one.

That’s Sporting Lisboa’s Joao Palhinha. The 24-year-old is on loan to Braga, and according to English newspaper Daily Mirror, the player pleases Wolves’ manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

His price tag would be around 13 million euros, and his current contract goes until 2023.

If Palhinha really goes to Wolverhampton, the Portuguese player will be the 9th Portuguese player in the squad.

In fact, the Portuguese Legion of Wolves, led by Espirito Santo, has shown surprising results, from when they were Championship champions, to the incredible Premier League campaign that put them in the UEFA Europa League.

Just like Manchester City’s Kyle Walker, Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka, and Everton’s Moise Kean, Wolverhampton midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White was filmed breaking social distancing measures as he was found partying with some friends.

That was the starting point for a massive reaction from the Wolves board, who literally self-isolated the youngster, as he’s training by himself whereas all of his teammates are finally getting back together.

After the whole party episode, the 20-year-old player stressed the importance of social isolation in his social networks.

“Please stay at home and leave your homes only if absolutely necessary. Now is the time to self-isolate, distance ourselves socially, and support the NHS. They are working for us, stay at home for them”.

Well, we all know that this whole social distancing is indeed very difficult, especially for a young player. But it’s necessary in these strange times we’re living in this creepy 2020.
