Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Vinagre began his career in the academy system of Sporting CP before joining Ligue 1 club AS Monaco in summer 2015.[1] After spending his first season solely in the club's youth side, he signed a professional contract in June 2016.[2]

During the summer of 2016, Vinagre featured in five matches of the Portuguese under-17 national team's success at the UEFA European Championship in Azerbaijan, where they won the tournament after defeating Spain on penalties in the final.[3]

In August 2016, a deal was agreed for Vinagre to be loaned to Portuguese Second Division side Académica de Coimbra to gain experience,[4] but FIFA, whose approval was required due to the player being under age 18, refused to sanction the deal.[5] After an unsuccessful appeal, Vinagre returned to his parent club in January 2017 without making any appearances for Académica.[6]

Wolverhampton Wanderers[edit]

In June 2017, Vinagre signed a new contract with Monaco due to last until summer 2022.[7] Shortly after, he moved on a season-long loan to English side Wolverhampton Wanderers for the 2017–18 season.[8] He made his senior debut on 8 August 2017 in an EFL Cup victory against Yeovil Town.[9] On 30 September 2017, Vinagre scored his first goal in professional football, scoring the third goal during Wolves' 4–0 win at Burton Albion.[10]

On 30 June 2018, Vinagre joined Wolves on a permanent basis, signing a five-year-contract for an undisclosed fee.[11]
