Manchester City want to sign Matheus Nunes following Kevin De Bruyne’s injury
The Cityzens continue to bolster their team this summer after winning the treble last year. Till date, they have hired Mateo Kovacic, Jeremy Doku, and Josko Gvardiol. Meanwhile, players like Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan have departed from Manchester City.
In the aftermath of Kevin de Bruyne’s catastrophic injury, City want to sign another midfielder. Potential possibilities include Nunes and Eberechi Eze, a standout for Crystal Palace.
Football Insider claims that City will make Nunes a second bid later on with a £60 million valuation. According to the article, Manchester City is convinced that the offer will be persuasive enough to persuade Wolves to sell.
To raise money for Financial Fair Play, the Wolves have already parted ways with Ruben Neves, Nathan Collins, and Raul Jimenez this window. They don’t have to sell additional players, but if one leaves, O’Neil would have more money to sign his own players.
