Real Madrid beaten by Championship side Wolves in Rafa Mir huntJanuary 3, 2018
Real Madrid have lost out to English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers in the race to sign talented youngster Rafa Mir.
Spanish publication Super Deporte reports that a deal worth €2m has been agreed with the Midlands based side, despite talk of an agreement with Madrid this month.
The young forward has entered the final six months of his current contract with Valencia and would of been able to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Mir, who has netted an impressive 15 goals in 19 games for Valencia’s B side in the Spanish third tier, has reportedly said goodbye to his family and friends and will move to England in the coming days.
The decision to join Wolves comes after Madrid’s offer to play for the B side, leaving Mir to opt for regular first team football with Nuno Espirito Santos’ table topping side.
Wolves are all set for a return to the Premier League after securing 61 points already this season, a landmark that leaves them 12 points clear of their nearest rivals.
Whilst Mir is highly regarded at Valencia, making two first team appearances during his development, the Spanish club have been helpless in stopping him from leaving.
