Ruben Vinagre could be in trouble if Filipe Luis joins Wolves

According to the Brazilian version of Goal, Wolves are one of the clubs interested in left-back Filipe Luis.

What’s the word?

Currently at Atletico Madrid, Luis could be on the move this summer with his contract at the Spanish side coming to an end.

The left-back has been a stalwart for the club down the years, currently in his eighth term with the former Champions League finalists.

However, after appearing 27 times in La Liga this season, it looks like he’ll be venturing to pastures new.

Per a report in Goal, the 33-year-old has been talking to Wolves over a possible switch in the coming months.

They claim the Midlands club may also face competition from European giants PSG and Flamengo for his signature.

Setback for Vinagre

If Wolves are to sign Luis then it would add a significant amount of experience to the Wolves backline.

The Brazilian has appeared 38 times for his country, having also featured on numerous occasions in the Champions League.

Given Wolves are set to feature in the Europa League next term, that could be extremely valuable.

But the major drawback of signing a left-back is that the development of Ruben Vinagre would take a considerable hit.

The young Portuguese defender is a star in the making but he only started seven times for the club this season in the Premier League. Bearing in mind he’s already behind Jonny in the pecking order, it would become even more difficult to see where he’d fit into the side if Luis joined.

Going into next season Vinagre can become a major cog in the Wolves team, particularly with the added games Nuno Santo’s men will have to play in 2019/20.

The youngster has impressed in his limited game time since moving from Monaco but the addition of another left-back would be incredibly detrimental. Furthermore, it could have him questioning whether his development is best served at Molineux.

Even on a free transfer, a deal for Luis shouldn’t be considered.
