Man City signs Wolves’ Nunes for 795 million won transfer

Nunes of Wolverhampton Wolves might soon join EPL powerhouse Man City for a 795 million won transfer fee.

English professional soccer club Manchester City (Man City) has reached a verbal agreement to acquire Wolverhampton midfielder Matheus Nunes.

“City have verbally agreed to pay Wolverhampton €55 million ($79.5 million) for Nunes,” ESPN reported on Jan. 31, citing league sources.

City have been looking to bolster their squad after star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne suffered a hamstring injury in the opening game of the 2023-2024 Premier League season.

Portugal international Nunes, born in 1998, scored one goal and provided one assist in league play last season.

Wolverhampton originally demanded a transfer fee of 69 million euros, or more than 100 billion won in Korean won, for Nunes, and talks with City reportedly broke down last week.

In this situation, Nunes was fined by the Wolverhampton club two days ago for missing team training, saying he wanted to go to Man City.

On the same day, City and Wolverhampton also agreed to loan City’s 2001-born midfielder Tommy Doyle to Wolverhampton.

While Nunes and Doyle are separate transfers, the deal will see City send Doyle to Wolverhampton for a transfer fee of €55 million and receive Nunes in return.

With the English professional soccer transfer window closing on Sept. 1 local time, an official announcement of Nunes’ move to City is expected soon.

Nunes was signed by Wolverhampton from Sporting Lisbon 카지노사이트넷 (Portugal) in August last year for a club-record fee of €45 million and a five-year contract.
