Manchester City exploring to make second offer for Wolves Matheus Nunes

Manchester City

Manchester City are preparing to try their luck for Wolves’ midfielder Matheus Nunes again after first bid rejected. The 24years old Portuguese is still on the radar for Manchester City. Pep Guardiola, who is a huge admirer of him, in 2021, when Nunes was at Sporting, adored him by saying “one of the best players in the world”.

According to The Telegraph, the Premier League champions are considering to submit an improved offer for the Portuguese international.

Manchester City lining up for the transfer fee with Wolves

The European Kings are preparing to return with an even improved second offer after their first pitch worth €50m, instantly turned down by the Wolves. However, the management at Etihad is confident about their new offer reportedly worth €60m.

Guardiola is insisting on the transfer after Kevin De Bruyne is unavailable for next 3-4months in the squad after picking up an injury. Moreover, City is also rumoured to be linked with Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze.

Manchester City has already reinforced their midfield with Kovacic from Stamford Bridge. However, Pep will be happy to have some squad depth in case of any other injury.

Matheus is under contract until 2027 at the Molineux, but Wolves are trying to cope up with the Financial Fair Play regulations. This has compelled them to release few players. In spite of this, they are pushing for Nunes to stay at Molineux.

Wolves ‘unhappy’ on transfer

Wolves are disappointed by Man City as they are waiting until the last week of the transfer window. This will leave them with no time for any replacement if the deal closes.

As per Romano, “New bid will be submitted after €55m package rejected, likely to be the last one from City.”

If the asking price for Nunes does not represent value for money, City will walk away from the deal and can pursue for the Eberechi Eze deal with Palace.
