Following the completion of Wolves’ club-record £53 million purchase, Portugal midfielder Matheus Nunes has been given permission to go to Manchester City for a physical.
The two clubs were able to reach an agreement with a higher price late on Wednesday night after resolving a few minor issues during final negotiations over an original £47.3m accord.
Although there are no add-ons, according to the PA news agency, there is a 10% sell-on fee on whatever profits City makes from the 25-year-old.
When Nunes joined Wolves from Sporting Lisbon for an initial £38 million last summer on a five-year contract with the option of further 12 months, he set a new club record for signings.
Last season, he made 34 appearances and contributed one assist in addition to one goal.
However, after becoming aware of City’s interest, Nunes skipped practice in an effort to make a move.
Tommy Doyle, a 21-year-old midfielder for City, is scheduled to have a medical on a season-long loan at Molineux. Wolves has a £4.2 million buyout option on Doyle, and City will hold a 50% sell-on fee on any profit generated by the player.
The England Under-21 international made an impression while on loan at Sheffield United last season, scoring four goals and dishing out seven assists in 38 appearances to help the Blades achieve promotion to the Premier League. The player is the grandson of Manchester City legends Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe.
