Joao Palhinha is close to completing his £17m Fulham move

That was with Jorge Mendes and Hernan Reguera fighting over a transfer commission.

Reguera is said to have negotiated Palhinha’s entire five-year deal to Fulham.

However, Sporting had previously given contractual exclusivity to Mendes to sort Palhinha’s move to England when Wolves were interested.

But it is understood super-agent Mendes and the player’s Spanish representative Reguera have agreed to split a fee of almost £2m between them.

Fulham stole the march on a deal for Palhinha after taking advantage of Wolves stalling their talks.

Wolves hesitated with the future of Ruben Neves then-undecided.

Marco Silva spoke on the phone to the former Manchester United target to convince him to snub Molineux.
