Manchester City are close to signing Matheus Nunez from Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to several sources.
There is not yet a definite agreement between the two clubs, but negotiations are moving forward and a package worth around 50 million euros with further additions is being discussed. As for the 24-year-old Portugal international who has previously been linked with Barcelona and Liverpool, he is believed to be open to the prospect of moving to City.
Recently City’s need for a midfielder has increased. After Ilkay Gündogan left for Barcelona, they signed Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea, but an injury that could see Kevin De Bruyne out for the rest of the year seems to have sparked plans for another player despite Bernardo Silva signing new contract.
Nunes moved to Wolverhampton just last summer from Sporting Lisbon for 45 million euros. Since then, he has made a total of 41 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring one goal and one assist. Whatever happens, he will not be part of the Wolves squad that will face Everton on 26 August after picking up a pair of yellow cards in a 4-1 home loss to Brighton.
