Wolves' Matheus Nunes is likely to be Manchester City's newest signing. The approach of the midfielder is expected to be formalized by the "citizens", as according to the English media, the agreement with Wolves has been reached. Manchester City initially offered 47 million pounds for the player's card, an offer that was rejected by his club. However, the leaders of City are preparing a new offer, which will be sent to Wolves before the closing of the market, and for which the "wolves" have agreed in principle.
Wolves striker Matheus Cunha appeared to confirm Nunes' departure from the team after posting a photo of the two on Instagram. The caption of the photo was emotional and implied that Nunes would already be leaving the club. The team's trainer, Gary O'Neil, also admitted that Nunes could leave last week. The technician was sympathetic, saying that he understood the reasons the player might have for leaving.
Meanwhile, City manager Pep Guardiola has long been a fan of the midfielder. Last year the Spaniard said:
"I think Matheus Nunes is one of the best players in the world today."
Nunes joined Wolves last summer for a record £38 million. In just 1 season with the team, it seems that the midfielder already has better options for his future. The player was not part of the team in the victory against Everton, as he was punished with a red card in the previous challenge against Brighton.
Since his arrival at Wolves, Nunes has made a total of 41 appearances in all competitions. He will be the perfect player for Guardiola, who has to deal with Kevin de Bruyne's injury, and find a solid solution to the spaces left in midfield.
