It has now been revealed whether Manchester City could actually sign both Matheus Nunes and Eberechi Eze in the ongoing summer window.
Now, the probability of Manchester City signing both Matheus Nunes and Eberechi Eze has come to the fore, as revealed by Jack Gaughan in a Q&A with the Daily Mail.
Jack Gaughan reveals whether Manchester City will sign both Matheus Nunes & Eberechi Eze
After Kevin De Bruyne’s long-term injury, it seems like the plan at the Etihad Stadium is to make up for his absence by bolstering their midfield department to contribute as much as he can.

Ultimately, the five-time Premier League winner is one of, if not the standout creator of his generation, which makes it virtually impossible to replace him.
However, Jack Gaughan believes it is unlikely that both Matheus Nunes and Eberechi Eze end up at Manchester City.
“Never say never and I’m looking at the big aggregator accounts on X when I say this – but it’d be a major surprise to see more than one midfielder come in before the window closes next week. Eze is one they watched extensively last season; scouts were majorly impressed but City have maintained all summer that it’s just a watching brief for now. Given the [Lucas] Paqueta news, some expect that stance to have altered.”
It has been revealed that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is particularly a fan of Matheus Nunes, perhaps more so than Eberechi Eze as well.
“Nunes is somebody who Guardiola loves, going back to when City faced Sporting in the Champions League a couple of years ago. He was glowing about him that night. But there will be at least one more name on this list.”
Eze over Nunes should be the choice if it comes down to it
As cracking a midfielder as Matheus Nunes is, Eberechi Eze is perhaps more needed in this Manchester City side, especially after Kevin De Bruyne’s injury.
Firstly, the Crystal Palace attacker can play in midfield alongside Phil Foden and take some of the creative burden off his shoulders after the Belgian’s injury.
Secondly, the Englishman is also capable of playing out wide, especially on the left and is capable of at least pushing Jack Grealish.
Matheus Nunes, on the other hand is more adept in a deeper role and Manchester City already have Bernardo Silva and Mateo Kovacic to operate in such positions, who are currently superior players to him anyway.
