Joao Moutinho Signs For Wolves

Experienced Portuguese international midfielder Joao Moutinho has signed for newly promoted Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the new season scheduled to kick off on August 10.

He joins Wolves on a two-year contract in a £5m deal from French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco.

The 31-year-old has 113 caps for Portugal and he’s the European nation’s third most capped player behind legend Luis Figo (127 caps) and Cristiano Ronaldo (154 caps).

Joao Moutinho played a prominent role as Portugal surprisingly won the 2016 European Championships in France.

He started his career at Sporting Lisbon before joining fellow Portuguese outfit FC Porto in 2010 where he won three Super League titles (2011-13), one Portuguese Cup title (2010/11) and one Europa League title (2010/11).

Moutinho then joined AS Monaco in a £21.5m deal in 2013.

He went on to score 11 goals in 2011 games for the Principality club in addition to helping them win the 2016/17 French Ligue 1 title.

Joao Moutinho will link up with his international teammate Rui Patricio at the club after the goalkeeper joined Wolves from Sporting Lisbon earlier in the summer.
