Long story short, Sporting players were attacked in the dressing room by their own fans. Team did nothing about it. Multiple players put in to FIFA to cancel their contracts due to stress, anxiety, unsafe work environment, etc. Wolves signed Patricio after this to a 4-year contract. Wolves were willing to pay compensation to keep good will between clubs and avoid legal proceedings. Sporting agreed, but apparetly decided to balk and go this route. Sporting is also trying to scare the other teams from signing the other players. Request for 2 window transfer ban for Wolves, 6 month player ban, paperwork published - Sport Witness Edit: 2 window ban. Not 2 year.
