'Oh sweet Jesus yes': Some Wolves fans react as club reportedly in talks with £34.5m ace

Wolves fans have welcomed speculation linking the Molineux club with Rafael Leao.

The Gazzetta dello Sport claims Wolves are in talks with Milan over the 22-year-old forward.

Wolves were apparently eyeing Leao in 2019 and 2020, so maybe it’ll be third time lucky in their pursuit of the 6ft 2in ace.

Wolves eyeing a player who was “better than Ronaldo” as a youngster?

Leao came through the Sporting CP academy, where coaches tipped him for stardom.

Tiago Fernandes, his former coach at the Lisbon club, even said he was “better than Ronaldo” as a youngster.

Leao only made five senior appearances in green and white – scoring twice – and in 2018, sealed a move to Lille.

The Portugal Under-21 ace shone in France and, just a year later, joined Milan for a reported £26.5m.

Leao has made 73 appearances in red and black, claiming 13 goals and nine assists.

His contract is reported to be £35,000-a-week and runs until 2024.

“Get this over the line”

Quite a few Wolves fans seem eager about the prospect of Leao coming to Molineux.

Here is some of the reaction on Twitter.
