How Wolves could line-up next season in the Premier League
The Portuguese manager guided Wolves to top spot of the Championship and earned a place back in the big time, ending a six-year exile from the Premier League. The last time Wanderers were in the top flight was back in 2012.
They were high flyers this season, leading the table since mid-November and produced some scintillating football ever seen in the division. They won 31 out of 47 games all season and a lot of help has not only been down to Santo, but to that of super-agent Jorge Mendes.
The 52-year-old helped to bring in the likes of Ruben Neves on a permanent deal from Porto and Diego Jota on-loan from Atletico Madrid, who will complete a permanent move to the Black Country this summer.
But with Santo ready to splash the cash this summer and Mendes on board, how could Wolves line-up next season?
GK: Jack Butland (Stoke City)
Butland could become Wolves' No.1 next season after Stoke were relegated to the Championship following defeat to Crystal Palace on the final day of the season. The 25-year-old has been linked with a switch to Molineux, and he certainly fits the bill.
John Ruddy has had a fine season between the sticks, receiving the Championship Golden Glove award, but he would be expected to become second choice next season or seek a move away, with Wolves ready to spend big.
Alternative option: Rui Patricio (Sporting Lisbon) - Made over 460 appearances for his boyhood club and at the age of 30, would definitely provide experience.
