Man City Agrees To Sign Wolves’ Matheus Nunes

Manchester City has reached an agreement to pay Wolverhampton Wanderers a sum of €55 million (£47.25 million) for the transfer of midfielder Matheus Nunes. As a part of these negotiations, Wolves have secured a season-long loan move for Tommy Doyle, who garnered attention with his performances during his loan spell at Sheffield United last season.

Both clubs have included a provision that allows Tommy Doyle to sign for Wolverhampton Wanderers on a permanent basis for a reduced fee of €5 million. Manchester City might facilitate the funding of this deal by potentially allowing the transfer of their homegrown player Cole Palmer, who is reportedly being pursued by Chelsea.

In the previous year, Pep Guardiola acclaimed Matheus Nunes as “one of the best players in the world.” Manchester City initially made an offer for Nunes, which could have amounted to £47 million, but Wolves turned it down. However, the Premier League champions have managed to secure the sale by increasing the upfront cash component. On another note, Chelsea had a £35 million bid for Cole Palmer turned down, but their interest in acquiring the City forward persists.

Man City quickly recognized Nunes as a top-priority target following Kevin De Bruyne’s recent hamstring surgery. Nunes, who was brought in from Sporting in a club-record transfer worth £42 million last summer, has not been attending Wolves’ training sessions since Sunday. He has clearly indicated his desire to depart from the club.

Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City has previously characterized Matheus Nunes as “one of the best players in the world today.” Within the European champions, there’s a prevalent belief that the Portuguese midfielder has the potential to flourish into a prominent figure under the guidance of the Catalan manager.

The anticipated sale of Nunes would provide Wolves, who have been constrained by financial fair play regulations, the opportunity to reinforce their squad. Should Wolves proceed with the expected sale of Matheus Nunes, it would mark a record-breaking transaction, just surpassing the £47 million fee paid by Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal for the transfer of Ruben Neves earlier this summer. The departure of Nunes has led to a challenging situation, including the departure of their manager Julen Lopetegui. Wolves are on the verge of confirming the €10 million signing of Girona’s center-back Santiago Bueno.

Santiago Bueno, the Uruguayan international, arrived in the UK for a medical examination on Wednesday and is expected to sign a long-term contract. This would mark their first signing of the summer for which a fee has been paid. The acquisition of the 24-year-old Uruguayan international aims to bolster their options in the center-back position, particularly following the departures of defenders Nathan Collins, Conor Coady, and Dion Sanderson.

Aston Villa is nearing the completion of a loan deal for Barcelona’s defender Clément Lenglet. The 28-year-old center-back, who was on loan at Tottenham last season, is set to join Villa to offer cover and support in the absence of Tyrone Mings, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury that casts doubt on his ability to play for the remainder of the season.
