Recent reports have revealed that Manchester City is once again interested in signing Matheus Nunes from Wolves. They have reportedly made a new bid of £51.4 million for the player according to Fabrizio Romano who had previously hinted at this possibility due to the financial difficulties faced by Wolves.

Manchester City’s pursuit of Matheus Nunes has gained momentum, demonstrated by their renewed bid to secure his transfer. With Kevin De Bruyne sidelined by injury for an extended period, the team aims to strengthen their midfield options to mitigate his absence.

As per Romano, Matheus Nunes is currently the subject of Manchester City’s most recent bid, which stands at £51.4 million. Moreover, with Wolves rejecting their initial offer of £40.8 million, Manchester City remains optimistic about reaching an agreement.

Furthermore, reports have indicated that the player and the club have already reached an agreement on personal terms. Matheus Nunes has a playing style that differs from the influential Kevin De Bruyne. Manchester City’s determined pursuit of the Portuguese international has sparked interest among observers.

Tactical changes Nunes can bring

Nunes’ proficiency in the initial phases of play is reminiscent of players such as Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic, who also excel in similar aspects of the game. There is speculation about how Matheus Nunes could be integrated into Manchester City’s tactics.

It is suggested that he might be positioned in a deeper role within a midfield trio. This allows Phil Foden to take on the creative No. 10 role. Furthermore, this tactical adjustment could lead to a diamond setup featuring Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez in the forward line.

If the deal goes through, it will undoubtedly be fascinating to observe how Manchester City incorporates Matheus Nunes into their squad and how his unique attributes could contribute to their overall style of play.
