Man City’s initial bid of €50 million plus €5 million in add-ons to Wolverhampton for Nunes was turned down. However, the determination to acquire Matheus Nunes has led to a revised offer of over €60 million with additional performance-based incentives.
As revealed by Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive column for CaughtOffside, the negotiations for this transfer are progressing positively with Manchester City’s intent to finalize the deal in the near future. Romano’s column states: “Matheus Nunes has been a top priority for Manchester City ever since the Lucas Paqueta deal was called off. Having seen a bid of €50m plus €5m in add-ons rejected by Wolves for the player last week, City has now returned with an offer worth more than €60m with add-ons. Man City wanted this deal done on Friday or Saturday, but seeing as that did not happen, discussions are still ongoing. This transfer is advancing well so keep an eye on it this week.”
