‘Very soon’: Manchester City now on the verge of capturing ‘Incredible’ international star – Negotiations in final stages
Matheus Nunes, a midfielder for Wolverhampton Wanderers, is reportedly close to joining Manchester City, according to the most recent information from Fabrizio Romano. After their initial offer was turned down a few days earlier, the Citizens kept after the player.
Thomas Nunes Very Near Signing a Contract with Manchester City
Here’s how Pep Guardiola will defend Manchester City’s treble:
Negotiations reach their conclusion.
A few days ago, City made their opening offer for the Wolves midfielder, which was rejected, for somewhere around £47 million plus add-ons. Romano claims that Wolverhampton Wanderers have received a new offer from the blue side of Manchester that exceeds £52 million.
The negotiations are reportedly nearing their conclusion, and the Champions League holders are growing more hopeful that they will sign the “incredible” midfielder before the transfer window closes. The Portuguese international is allegedly a favorite of Pep Guardiola.
What advantages does Matheus Nunes provide Manchester City?
After their talisman Kevin De Bruyne sustained a major injury early in the season, the Premier League champions went on the hunt for a midfielder in the transfer market. The first choice to replace the Belgian was Lucas Paqueta, but the deal fell through at the last minute owing to off-the-field concerns.
The Portugal international has excellent fundamentals and is a highly well-rounded football player. He is a skilled midfielder who can play a variety of positions in the middle of the field. The former Sporting CP player can move the ball forward quickly thanks to his outstanding dribbling skills. With Ilkay Gundogan gone and De Bruyne injured, the Citizens will miss his propensity for making timed runs into the box from midfield.
