Rui Fonte’s Fulham career was somewhat underwhelming after he was signed for £9m from Braga in August 2017. The Portuguese forward showed flashes of brilliance, such as scoring a superb first goal for the club on his first start at Ipswich in August 2017, but struggled for fitness as he tried unsuccessfully to adapt to the English game. He eventually returned to Braga on a permanent basis in August 2019 with his path to first team football blocked by a certain Aleksandar Mitrovic.
