Wolves yet to offer a deal to in-demand manager

In demand Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo is yet to start talks with Wolves over a new deal if reports in England are to be believed. 

The Molineux boss is out of contract in 15 months and has been linked with several high-profile jobs inside and outside England. 

The Portuguese manager has worked wonders with Wolves in the last few years and that has alerted several big clubs. 

He is a fan favourite at the Molineux and the fans have every reason to be tensed as his contract is out to expire in 15 months. 

He was linked with the Arsenal job before Mikel Arteta succeeded Unai Emery in December. 

But asked if Wolves chiefs had offered him a new agreement, Nuno said: “They haven’t.  There was no proposal on that. 

“I have more than a year of a contract so I don’t think about that.” 

The 46-year-old Portuguese manager signed a one-year extension in the summer of 2018 after leading Wolves to the Championship title.

He has since led them to the last-32 of the Europa League and they remain in contention for an European spot this season as well. 

But when it was put to him that clubs usually persuade players to extend their deals in their penultimate year of their contracts, Nuno replied: “I don’t write my own contract. 

“When you sign something you stick to it.

“We started three seasons ago, not only me but a lot of people moved and changed their lives to come to Wolverhampton. 

“The fans can be totally assured every day, Wolves is my obsession, I don’t think about anything else, " he further added. 

Wolves Sporting director Kevin Thelwell quit last week to take a similar role at MLS club New York Red Bulls and it is a major blow to the club.

Thelwell has played a key role for the club in the transfer market as they signed some high-profile players in recent times.
