Wolves sign FC Porto wonderkid Fabio Silva for €40m

Wolves are adding another exciting Portuguese talent to their ranks after agreeing a deal for FC Porto wonderkid Fabio Silva.

Silva, 18, is joining Wolves for €40m according to leading Portuguese sources RecordO JOGO and A BOLA.

The teenage striker has a €125m release clause, but in the current climate Porto know they will not get that.

Porto had been hoping to get a fee similar to that of Joao Felix, who Benfica sold to Atletico Madrid for €126m last year.

But the Coronavirus crisis has had an effect on the transfer market and Porto were willing to listen to offers of €40m.

The income will allow Porto to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules and reinforce their squad.

Silva played 22 games for Porto last season, scoring three goals. His enormous potential has won him comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo.

17:30 UPDATE:

Fabio Silva’s club-record transfer has now been made official by Wolves. He has signed a five-year contract.
