Wolves journalist Nathan Judah has been sharing his thoughts on a potential new deal for Nuno Espirito Santo.
This comes after Judah recently hosted an episode of The Express & Star’s Wolves Podcast to discuss the latest news surrounding the club.
On the topic of a potential new contract for Espirito Santo, Judah shared his thoughts on what Wolves could offer the Portuguese manager.
He said: “I think he’ll sign a new deal. I think he’ll be on a huge contract. I think that he’ll be on a massive raise, as he deserves. But I think there will be the understanding that if someone ‘galactico’ comes in, then Wolves will allow him to speak if the time is right as a thank-you.
“That’s what I think. It won’t be like, ‘no, we’re rejecting any kind of approach’, I think if a Real Madrid or a Barcelona or a Man City come in for him, let’s say, and they say we want to speak to Nuno, I don’t think as Wolverhampton Wanderers, you can begrudge him speaking to them. And I think that will probably be written in an understanding in any kind of contract that will be signed.”
Should Wolves offer Espirito Santo a new contract?
The 46-year-old took charge at Molineux back in July 2017 after previous spells at Porto and Valencia (per Transfermarkt).
Since then, Espirito Santo has overseen 148 matches for Wolves and has managed to earn an average of 1.82 points per game.
His current contract at the Midlands club expires at the end of June 2021.
The fact that Judah thinks the club should give Espirito Santo permission to be able to speak to other clubs in the future just goes to show how much respect he has for the Wolves manager.
