Matheus Nunes appears to have adapted to Manchester City’s squad quite fast, according to Paul Dickov.
At the tail end of the previous summer transfer window, the Manchester club acquired the midfielder from rival Premier League team Wolves in a transaction costing a whopping £53 million.
The Portuguese international has received plaudits from one commentator with a direct connection to the team despite still being a relatively new member of the squad.
Impact of Nunes astounded Dickov
This is what Dickov had to say about Nunes on talkSPORT.
Matheus Nunes, who had just arrived from Wolves, appeared to have been there for a while, according to him.
The 25-year-old has made six appearances for Pep Guardiola’s team in all competitions since moving to the Etihad Stadium, starting three of them.
It’s encouraging to hear from Dickov that he believes Nunes already looks the part and has adapted well to the City club, despite the fact that the midfielder has only had a few opportunities to show his new manager what he can do on the field.
The former Wolves player may have the ideal opportunity to once again demonstrate his talent and establish himself this weekend, when the Citizens travel to north London to play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
The Portuguese international will undoubtedly gain even more accolades in the future if he can maintain his performance on the field and figure out what Guardiola expects of him.
