Club chairman Jeff Shi expressed his delight with Wolves’ latest capture, as he told the club website: ‘We are very pleased Marcal has joined the pack.

‘Having played over 280 games in top leagues, as well as Champions League football, Marçal will add a huge amount of experience to our young team.

‘He is a player with the technical ability to be able to contribute in the build up play from the back, all the way through to threatening the opposition in the final phase.’

Marcal’s arrival has capped off a busy couple of days at Molineux, as he joins £35million club-record signing Fabio Silva as another new addition to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

The 18-year-old wonderkid arrived from Porto and signed on the dotted line, costing the Midlands club in the region of £35m. 

Silva had a £112m buy out clause in his Porto contract, but the Portuguese giants have been forced to consider substantially lower offers following the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
