Life is good at Wolves.
Nuno Santo’s side are twelve points clear at the top of the Championship, beating Real Madrid to transfers and are already planning for life in the Premier League.
Much of the success has been spearheaded by Jorge Mendes’ ability to persuade the great and good of Portuguese football to move to the Black Country, as well as Kanye West of course.
But Wolves’ latest move isn’t motivated by Mendes’ money. It’s all to do with pure romance.
The club are lining up a move for former striker Robbie Keane, according to the Mirror.
The 38-year-old is currently playing for Indian Premier League side Atletico de Kolkata, where he’s managed by Teddy Sheringham.
Wolves boss Santo reportedly believes Keane’s experience will be crucial in helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League.
Wolves striker Leo Bonatini is the third highest scorer in the Championship having struck 12 times while winger Diego Jota has chipped in with 11 goals.
But there’s no substitution for experience.
Keane isn’t opposed to a romantic return, having played for Spurs on three different occasions.
Just picture the scenes when he scores the goal that takes Wolves back up to the promise land.
We’re not crying, it’s just hot in here.
