Contrary to recent media reports, João Palhinha (26) will not join Wolverhampton Wanders, but apparently a competitor from the Premier League. According to a report by ‘A Bola’, Fulham FC are meeting Sporting Lisbon’s demands. As a result, the Cottagers pay 20 million euros plus another two million euros in possible bonuses for the services of the strong six.
In addition, the Lisboners secured a stake in a future sale of Palhinha. The deal is set to be signed as soon as the Portugal international returns from vacation. This is a real bargain for Fulham. In Palhinha’s contract, which is valid until 2026, there is an exit clause of 60 million euros. Bayer Leverkusen has also been said to be interested in the defensive midfielder.
