The salary of the Portuguese goalkeeper compared to his Wolverhampton Wanderers teammates
Back in Portugal he had a good salary. In England? Even better! He earns 6 Million Euro per year and his net worth is currently estimated at 30 Million Euro (25.8 Million Pound). He is not the youngest player anymore but as we all know keepers can play at a high level un till the end of their thirties - there are many examples of that. His estimated market value is still 18 Million Euro (15.5 Million Pound).
The Portuguese goalkeeper has a tattoo on his left arm. This picture was made when he was still protecting the goal of Sporting.

This amazing Portuguese goalkeeper was born in Marrazes. Before he moved to the Wolves he played twelve years for the Portugese club Sporting CP. Overthere he became a true legend: in twelve seasons he helped the club to win five trophies - including two Portuguese cups. He also was the first goalkeeper of the Portuguese squad for many years and helped his mate Cristiano Ronaldo to win the 2016 Euro Cup. Fun fact: before he became a goalkeeper he was playing as a striker. He joined Sporting CP in 2000 at the age of 12 and made his Primeria Liga debut in 2006 against C.S. Maritimo. In June 2018 he submitted a request to the board of Sporting to terminate his contract due to the dressing room violence from supporters. This year many respected players of Sporting CP left the club. He moved to the newly promoted Premier League team Wolverhampton Wanderers for a 18 Million Euro fee. The same summer it was announced that he signed a four-year-contract at the Molineux Stadium with an amazing salary of 6 Million Euro per year. He currently plays with number 11, quite unusual for a goalkeeper indeed. It is in honour of Carl Ikeme, the Wolves keeper who had just retired following treatment for acute leukaekemia. Saint Patricio made his BPL debut against Everton (2-2 draw) and convinced everybody of his capabilities in only a couple of games. Legend!
