Wolves issue key update as surprise link to Real Madrid star emerges
Wolverhampton Wanderers have started to contact ticket holders regarding purchases for their remaining Premier League matches at Molineux.
Wolves’ season has been suspended for more than two months now due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Discussions are well underway for the Premier League to resume in the coming months but football isn’t likely to return as we know it.
Those matches are now poised to be played behind closed doors, and fans aren’t expected to be allowed inside football grounds for the foreseeable future.
And the club has begun communicating with supporters to offer compensation for tickets which have already been bought.

Premier League chief Richard Masters believes ‘it is safe’ to return – and he’s also addressed clubs’ concerns about playing a neutral grounds.
Wolves’ players started training in small groups this week, as did the rest of the league, after training protocols were passed on Monday.
Project Restart’s goal of resuming fixtures by June 12 looks ambitious but it’s finally off the ground.
“We’ve taken the first step,” Masters told the BBC. “It’s great for everybody, including the fans, to see our players back on the training ground.”
Masters warned the Premier League is likely to take a ‘different approach’ to the Bundesliga – which returned last weekend – and warned flexibility would be required in case of any complications.
But he believes those issues won’t come as a result of any misguided decisions over the return to training.
“We wouldn’t have taken the first step to get back to training if we weren’t convinced we had created a very safe environment for our players,” he added.
“It is the first step and we have to be sure when we go to contact training we have completed those processes.
“We have done everything we possibly can to make return to training as safe as possible.
“We think it is safe to return. We have to respect players’ decisions not to return to training. I would be comfortable to return to training.”

Wolves linked with Real Madrid man
Wolves are interested in Real Madrid youngster Óscar Rodríguez, according to reports.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo say the midfielder is likely to leave the Bernabeu this summer – and has various options.
They cite German outfit Schalke 04 as one, Lazio as another – and a move to Molineux as a third.
The 21-year-old has been on loan at Leganes this season – where he has caught the eye of potential suitors.
The report says he will return to Real at the end of the campaign when Zinedine Zidane will decide whether to allow him to leave permanently.
They claim the signs suggest Rodriguez will leave Real, although they are considering inserting a repurchase option into any deal, with the fee thought to be around €20million.
Rodríguez has been deployed as an attacking midfielder most commonly this season and has scored seven goals in 28 appearances for Leganes.
