Man City Approaches Wolves for Midfielder


Matheus Nunes: Wolves are holding out for £60 million, and Man City is likely to make a new offer for the midfielder.

Last Thursday, Man City's £47 million deal for Matheus Nunes was rejected, but they are poised to make another offer; Portuguese international, who came in club-record £42m transfer last summer, is valued at at least £60m by Wolves; City wants a successor for Kevin De Bruyne, who is injured.

The midfielder will face consequences for failing to show up to the club's training facility on Sunday and Monday. He will not play against Blackpool in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Wolves valued Nunes at more than £60 million, and City's £47 million offer was turned down last week. Since then, no new offer has been made.

Wolves won't let the Portugal international leave until their valuation is satisfied; he has a contract through 2027 with an additional year's option.

Prior to the transfer deadline on Friday, City is anticipated to make Nunes a better offer once again.

The contract for Nunes, who joined Wolves from Sporting in a club-record £42 million deal last summer, has four years left on it with an additional year's option.

The 24-year-old has shown flashes of his potential, but his only goal for the team came against Chelsea last season.
