Which is 30% more than their entire annual turnover. Probably wise if they give Fernandes a call at QPR and ask him what happens when spending like that

Clearly very talented and a great prospect but has been shite this season. Milan is a complete mess to be fair though. Anyway, if Wolves keep pulling off transfers like this and Ruben Neves they’ll be the strongest promoted team in Prem history, that’s for sure. Bar maybe Blackburn and all their millions I suppose.

So how do the calculations for FFP work for this one? Spend the money and take the fine cos it's less than the rewards for promotion? Is this how it works?

I was born in Wolverhampton and look out for them (not in a Brighton/proper team way). Didn't think I'd see them where they are now, crazy. Basically up and who knows from there.

Totally in the dark about wolves and their owners. Last owner I knew was millionaire jack Hayward.

The Wolves fans must be loving this new found "world of wonderland" they are currently in, after years of promise but always disappointment they are now on the verge of something special and in fairness playing some lovely stuff.
But you have to congratulate their management if this is true for showing ambition and backing their manager fully, even though they currently sit 12 points clear and look certs for promotion, yet are willing to layout that huge amount Now.

Each to their own but there’s no way in hell a club can shell out what they have and stay within FFP rules.

It’s a gamble (minus this potential signing) that looks likely to pay off but so many clubs try and fail and it’s just another example of what’s wrong with modern football.

I’m sure we’d enjoy seeing those types of players but we’ve had Lombardo in the championship and look how that ended up!

Parish and Freedman use FM 2015 to scout. Parish refuses to buy the new one

Aren’t Wolves owned by an agent/management company of some kind?

Trying to work out what the point of the .7 is. Maybe they think it looks more dramatic or something.

I hear what you are saying and do not disagree entirely, what you have to remember is their owners must have a bob or two to spend as they have shown already. Also they have been fortunate with their choice of manager who seems to have come up trumps and getting them to play some excellent attacking football, and have all the ingredients like stadium and crowd potential to make going up a success.
Your point about FFP is an interesting one though for them to overcome.
