FIFA has confirmed an investigation is underway after Sporting CP complained about Rui Patricio's transfer to Premier League new boys Wolves.

The Portugal international signed a four-year deal at Molineux last month after terminating his Sporting contract in the aftermath of an attack by a section of the club's supporters following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Sporting, who have opened legal proceedings against Patricio and six other players, remain angry at the free transfer and have written to FIFA to demand compensation.

Arsenal to miss out on free transfer with Atletico in talks to seal a deal

  Arsenal to miss out on free transfer with Atletico in talks to seal a deal Arsenal look set to miss out on the signature of Gelson Martins, with Atletico Madrid now leading the race to sign the player. Mundo Deportivo claims that the Spanish side have held talks over a deal and remain in discussions with Sporting for the player. Martins is one of many players to rescind their contracts with the Portuguese club, meaning he is available for nothing this summer. The report claims that Atletico are still in talks with Sporting over a deal, in a similar reason to why Wolves discussed a transfer fee for Rui Patricio. The club want to avoid any potential legal claims that Sporting could file for in the future and want the deal to go through on good terms. However, the player’s availability has alerted the likes of Atletico Madrid and Arsenal, with the latter being heavily linked with a move for the Portuguese international. Arsenal was reportedly the player’s preferred destination, but now Atletico appear to be leading the race to sign him.

Sporting CP have reportedly filed a complaint to FIFA over Rui Patricio ' s move to Premier League newboys Wolves . So upset was Patricio that he cancelled his contract with Sporting in protest of the behaviour of then-president Bruno de Carvalho.

Sporting Lisbon have filed paperwork with FIFA calling for Wolves to pay them £48million for goalkeeper Rui Patricio . His move came after former Sporting president Bruno de Carvalho pulled out of a £16million deal to take him to Molineux.

The letter, published by Record, states Sporting are seeking €58.7 million (£51.8m/$65.5m) from Wolves, while also requesting the club are handed a transfer ban and Patricio is suspended for six months.

Football's governing body verified receipt of the dossier from Sporting and advised a full investigation was now underway.

"We can confirm that we have received a complaint from Sporting Clube de Portugal against Wolverhampton Wanders and the player [Patricio]," a FIFA spokesperson told Omnisport.

"As the contractual dispute is currently under investigation, please understand that no further comment can be made at this stage."

When contacted by Omnisport, Wolves declined to comment on the case.
